Mayor Panaligan checks on stranded passengers in Calapan City
Mayor Arnan Panaligan has paid a visit to the stranded passengers in Calapan City due to rough weather conditions brought about by Typhoon Ursula.
“A few hours before Christmas, City Mayor Arnan C. Panaligan visited stranded passengers from the Visayas, mostly from the provinces of Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan and Antique who are sheltered at Bgy. Camilmil evacuation center,” Panaligan’s office said.
“They were stranded in Calapan City due to the typhoon that caused the cancellation of ferry trips,” it added.
Aside from the mayor, other city government officials and personnel took care of the stranded passengers from other provinces due to the approaching storm.
“‘Kahit bisperas na ng pasko, ipinakita ng mga staff ng City Government of Calapan ang kanilang malasakit sa paglilingkod at dedikasyon sa katungkulan upang asikasuhin ang mga pasahero mula sa ibang lugar na stranded sa Calapan City dahil sa bagyo,” the mayor’s office said.
Meanwhile, the provincial government pf Oriental Mindoro likewise provided packed ready meals for the stranded passengers.
Oriental Mindoro was also one of the provinces severely hit by Typhoon Tisoy earlier this month.
