The Sorsogon provincial government said that its clearing team recently deployed in Catanduanes is now back in the province after a week.

“Makalipas ang isang linggo, nakabalik na ang ikalawang grupo ng Task Force Sorsogon mula sa pagsasagawa ng clearing operation sa mga bayan ng Virac at Bato sa lalawigan ng Catanduanes,” said the porvincial government.

Catanduanes was one of the provinces in Bicol that felt the brunt of recent typhoons including Quinta, Rolly and Ulysses.

The Task Force Sorsogon has also been sent in other Bicol provinces to aid them in clearing operations.

“Maliban sa pagpapatuloy sa clearing operation sa mga nasabing bayan, nagtayo pansalamantala ng water filtration system sa mga naturang lugar upang magkaroon ng malinis na tubig ang mga residente bilang bahagi ng Water Sanitation and Hygiene project nito,” said the province.

“Nagsagawa rin ang grupo ng psychological first aid sa mga biktima ng #ROLLYPH at #ULYSSESPH at feeding program. Namigay din sila ng food packs bilang bahagi ng food for work program na ipinagkakaloob sa mga residente na tutulong sa clearing operation,” it added.

The Task Force Sorsogon is composed of members of the Sorsogon Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (SPDRRMO), DPWH-Sorsogon, 903rd Brigade of AFP and PNP Sorsogon.
