Capiz remains typhoon-free so far

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (8 October) -- The province of Capiz has been spared by the nine typhoons which hit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) as of October 4 this year.

"No typhoon signal has directly affected the province so far," said local Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA) weather observer Harry Dolfo.

The typhoons which entered the PAR since January include "Amang", "Bebing", "Cheding", "Dodong", "Egay", "Falcon", "Goreng", "Hannah", and "Ineng".

"But the indirect result to the province was cloud development which eventually brought rain," noted Dolfo of the past typhoons.

The country is prone to natural calamities and it is for this reason that the government will institutionalize a nationwide disaster preparedness network to deal with various calamities every year.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo underscored the importance of preparedness in coping with and overcoming disasters, saying "disaster mitigation should be everyone's business" during the National Disaster Consciousness Month celebration last July.

The government also observed in the third week of June 2007 the "Typhoon and Flood Awareness Week" to ensure the public's safety and security from such destructive weather phenomenon. (PIA) [top]
