NDCC awaits LGU assessment on storm damage

Manila (9 September) -- Press Undersecretary Anthony Golez and Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Gary Olivar said the National Disaster Coordinating Council will recommend the lifting of the state of national calamity in certain provinces if local government units think it is no longer necessary.

According to Golez, Defense Secretary and NDCC chairman Gilbert Teodoro Jr. will wait for the LGUs to finish reviewing the extent of the damage.

He said "You cannot hurry it up because you have to get in touch with each town, city and barangay. It takes time to get a clear picture of what is happening."

On evacuees vandalizing the schools or public centers, Golez and Olivar said they "must be disciplined."

The government is now talking about rehabilitation of disaster areas, through the LGUs rehabilitation funds.

"It sometimes takes years before normalcy is achieved. It depends on the plan of LGUs. If for instance, the LGU plan has "Balik Probinsiya" then it could be faster. It depends on the strategy of local government units, kung mapapabilis or mapapatagal nila the kind of rehab they will implement," Olivar said.

The government is also calling on the private sector to help in creating livelihood and employment in relocation sites so that people would not return to their former sites in endangered areas. There are now 300,000 relocates that need to be given livelihood. (PIA) [top]
