MMDA sends rescue team to Tuguegarao City

Manila (9 November) -- After the continuous rains which caused flooding in the area of Cagayan Valley, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has sent a 16-man rescue team recently to Tuguegarao City, Cagayan to help in the rescue and relief operations.

MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino ordered the deployment of the contingent as a response to the request for assistance of Congressman Randolph Ting and the city government of Tuguegarao.

"In addition to manpower, we also sent three rubber boats and outboard motors to help in the evacuation of thousands of residents from thirty nine barangays submerged in water due to continuous rainfall in the area," Tolentino said.

The team, comprised mostly of personnel from the agency's Rescue Unit and Public Safety Office, helped the local government units in transporting affected residents to several evacuation centers in the province.

At present, the team is placed on standby on critical points in Tuguegarao to respond to the reported possible damming of the Chico River.

"This just goes to show that the MMDA is always ready to help and extend its services to everyone in need, even beyond Metro Manila," Tolentino said. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
