PIA Press Release

PDCC, Army in Isabela brace for Ramil

Ilagan, Isabela (20 October) -- The Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC) here has alerted all disaster councils in the province together with the 5ID Philippine Army based in this province when the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecasted before noon today that super typhoon Ramil might hit northern Luzon this coming days.

PAGASA said Ramil will be bringing strong winds and warned the areas that may be directly hit and affected to get ready and on alert while the typhoon has not yet made a landfall.

The PDCC, like what they did during typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng, is now preparing relief goods ready for distribution to would-be-affected families.

It has also activated its rescue teams to respond to emergencies especially to those individuals who will be trapped in low-lying areas or are near the rivers and coastal areas.

The readiness of the PDCC during the last two typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng has registered no casualties because of the pre-emptive evacuations made to the low-lying area residents of the province and through the putting-up of monitoring and command post at the provincial capitol.

The quickness of Magat Dam officials in the operations before, and during the typhoon and after it exited was also noticed when no casualties were registered by the PDCC.

The Philippine Army that is based in this province is also preparing its men for typhoon Ramil.

5ID Civil Military Battalion Commander Col. Loreto Magundayao said that some units of the military in Northern Luzon have been ordered to help local government units that might be affected by the typhoon.

As forecasted by PAGASA typhoon Ramil is expected to make a landfall on Thursday in the provinces of Isabela and Cagayan. (PIA Isabela) [top]
