VG Lagman lauds Albayano spirit, courage in times of calamity


Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman felt “heartened” with the courage of Albayanos to everyone safe amid the calamity they are experiencing.

Albay is one of the first few provinces in Bicol that felt the brunt of Typhoon Tisoy.

“But i am heartened by the commitment and courage of all Albayanos from all walks of life in making sure everyone’s prepared,” said Lagman.

Although the typhoon is something beyond their control, when it comes to disaster-preparedness, “we control this aspect 100%.”

“And in times of natural calamities that have struck the region, I invariably see ordinary people go beyond the call of duty and just do extraordinary things for their families and communities,” the Albay VG said.

“Together, we are stronger than this typhoon,” he added.

Typhoon Tisoy made landfall last night in Gubat, Sorsogon. Signal no. 1 is currently raised in the province.
