Dumaguete Port damage
at P100 million, PPA says
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Typhoon “Pablo” may have spared Negros Oriental in terms of lives lost with only two casualties and leaving minimal damage to property, but cost millions of pesos on government infrastructure.
The Philippine Ports Authority reported an initial damage of around P100 million, and a team of technical personnel and engineers are arriving from Manila to determine its extent.
Acting Dumaguete port manager, Annie Lee Manese, stayed at her quarters at the port but evacuated to the administration building until she was rescued by a fire truck.
