PIA Press Release
2006/10/03

Analysis: Spot checks on prices in markets, stores necessary

Bacolod City (3 October) -- To ensure an unhampered and steady supply of commodities the government continues to monitor prices of basic commodities in Metro Manila to "protect the people from predators who could take advantage of the situation."

Typhoon 'Milenyo' wreaked havoc in the country's premier cities destroying a still undetermined worth of properties and leaving 190 deaths as October 3, 2006.

Storm winds, considered to be one of the strongest to have ever hit the capital, toppled giant billboards killing those it hit at the height of the typhoon.

The government is now dismantling these structures to avoid further accidents as more storms are expected to enter the Philippine territories.

"Financial assistance will be provided to the families of those who died from the devastation, as relief and medical operations covering the 61,000 displaced families are continuously being provided by the DSWD and the DOH in coordination with the local officials," Malacaņang officials said.

The government is also keeping a close watch over critical infrastructures like power firms, telecommunication companies and water utilities to ensure its unhampered delivery of services to the people.

" The Arroyo administration continues to lead and coordinate the rehabilitation effort and steward the welfare of the victims until they are brought back to their feet." (PIA-LOL) [top]
