PIA Press Release

Housing program in Tuba eyed for typhoon Pepeng victims

by SC Aro

La Trinidad, Benguet (31 October) -- The provincial government is considering the housing program of the National Housing Authority in Tadiangan, Tuba as relocation site for the victims left homeless by typhoon "Pepeng" since it is a government property.

Governor Nestor Fongwan said he was able to talk to the National Housing Authority about their housing program and he also wrote the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) to address the housing needs of those affected by typhoon "Pepeng." He, however, said this depends again upon the victims should they opt for the relocation site being considered.

Moreover, Fongwan reactivated the Provincial Development Coordinating Council (PDCC) last Friday in anticipation of any impending disturbances of typhoon "Santi."

He directed police contingents including the various Municipal Development Coordinating Councils to monitor and guard critical areas on a man-to-man strategy, meaning, they are assigned to a specific area and take necessary actions if needed.

He also reiterated the order for the suspension of operations of small scale miners until such time that good weather allows them to.

As can be recalled, Fongwan issued the unnumbered memorandum on October 2, 2009 during an emergency meeting of the PDCC held at the Ben Palispis Auditorium and was further reiterated in the onset of the succeeding typhoons.

Evacuation sites in respective areas are already identified, he added. Typhoon victims left homeless by typhoon "Pepeng" and those whose residences are in danger are still occupying evacuation centers as they have nowhere to go back to. (PIA-Benguet) [top]
