Albay placed under state of calamity
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Albay (SPA) has passed a resolution declaring the whole province under a state of calamity.
The province of Albay was one of the provinces in Bicol Region that first experienced the wrath of Typhoon Tisoy.
“Now the office of the Local Chief Executive (LCE) Govi Al Francis Bichara can access the Quick Response Fund (QRF) for all contingencies relative to the repair and rehabilitation of province-owned infrastructures and address the immediate health, social services and emergency housing needs of vulnerable Albayanos,” Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman said.
“The SPA, the Office of the Governor and all provincial executive departments will always be at the forefront in serving our beloved Albayanos,” Lagman said.
Meanwhile, Lagman also congratulated the collective efforts of various government agencies and the cooperation of Albayanos as the province recorded zero casualty.
“And, most importantly, job well done because we’re Zero Human Casualty in Albay,” said the VG.
