Usman didn’t skip Iriga City, but at least it took no lives, says Mayor Madelaine Alfelor
Iriga Mayor Madelaine Alfelor has found a silver lining in her city’s recent experience with tropical depression Usman.
Usman didn’t spare Iriga City, but it did not take any lives, Alfelor said in a statement posted on the city’s official Facebook page.
She said people may have branded the local government as overacting, but people’s safety is paramount.
She thanked all the local officials who contributed to the efforts to ensure people’s safety and to ensure that there would be zero casualties during the disaster.
She is happy that the city is resilient, she added.
The weather may have lent a gloomy feel to the new year, but there is still reason to rejoice!
