by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (10 September) -- Damages to crops and infrastructure left by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng exceeded to P103, 614,510.00.

The Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC) reported that infrastructure damages reached a total of P100M including provincial and national roads, and flood controls in the different towns here. Several landslides also rendered the roads linking Kiangan to Tinoc and Banaue to Mayoyao not passable.

Engr Orlando Sarol and Engr Noli Tayaban from the Provincial Engineering Office said that most of the damages in provincial roads are eroded road shoulders.

The typhoons also left P2, 629,510.00 worth of damages to agriculture. Provincial Disaster Officer Marcela Cortez said that agricultural crops destroyed by typhoon Pepeng were palay, banana, snap beans, corn, papaya and sweet pepper.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) also monitored prices of goods. Accordingly there was no increase in the prices of basic commodities here.

Ms Miriam Baguidudol, the head of the Provincial Sustainable Development Division here said that the local disaster councils both at the provincial and municipal levels were activated and ready to respond to any disaster related incidents.

With the preparedness and alertness of all concerned, there was no casualty this time, Baguidudol said. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
