‘Pablo’ wrecks 349 houses,
causes 2,875 to evacuate

Typhoon Pablo destroyed 43 houses and damaged 306 others in four towns and two cities in Negros Occidental, and caused 2,875 to evacuate as a preventive measure against its wrath Tuesday night, the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office said yesterday.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said the provincial government will provide financial assistance to those whose houses were destroyed and damaged, while food assistance and medicines were delivered by the PSWDO to evacuees early yesterday.

The PSWDO will conduct an inventory so the provincial government can provide assistance of P5,000 each to those whose houses were destroyed and P3,000 for those damaged, he added.moremoremore

Classes at all levels resume

Acting Bacolod Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson said yesterday that classes will resume in all levels in Bacolod City today after storm warning signals were lifted in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental, with typhoon “Pablo” having moved on towards Northern Palawan.

Sayson said about 230 families living along the shoreline of Bacolod returned to their homes yesterday.

They had been asked to move to evacuation centers in their areas before the high tide came in Tuesday night.

Flashflood kills
Negros soldier

Even military personnel who were supposed to conduct rescue operations in Compostela Valley province were not spared by the onslaught of typhoon Pablo.

A Negrense soldier, who was among those mobilized for rescue operations by the Army’s 10th Infantry Division, died Tuesday, when their temporary command post in New Bataan town of Compostela Valley province, was hit by a flashflood.

Lt. Col. Lyndon Paniza, spokesman of the 10th Infantry Division, yesterday confirmed the death of Sgt. Maximo Olivarez, 38, of Brgy. Inolingan, Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental.moremoremore
