Pangasinan rehabilitation now in full swing, says governor

Lingayen, Pangasinan (29 October) -- Rehabilitation efforts for the 34 towns and three cities in Pangasinan severely affected by the recent massive floods are now under way.

Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. bared this during the Lingguhang Talakayan sa Kapitolyo even as he expressed sympathy to the families of the 62 casualties and those who lost their properties. He said the province is set to give them financial aid.

The governor said that the province thru the Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC) already submitted the reports on damages to Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita, the National Disaster Coordinating Council and other concerned agencies like the Department of Agriculture and Department of Public Works and Highways. The total damage runs to some P9.5 billion.

Rehabilitation works for the Ambayaoan Bridge in San Nicolas town which was damaged by strong currents are ongoing, he said.

"This immediate response made by the province has helped 18 barangays in San Nicolas where 62 percent of its populace lives on the other side of the bridge," he said.

The governor also said that rehabilitation is now being done in some of the damaged dikes and roads in cooperation with the engineering districts.

Espino also said that some 48,600 families received of relief goods and medicines. Distribution of goods is continuing with the support of entities like the DSWD, ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya and non-government and civic-oriented organizations.

He said the province will try its best to help farmers who suffered heavily by providing them farm inputs to enable them to plant for the second cropping season. (PIO/PIA Pangasinan) [top]
