Iriga Mayor Madelaine Alfelor calls for prayers as typhoon nears
For Iriga City Mayor Madelaine Alfelor, prayers are an important part of the preparations for the arrival of a typhoon.
As Tisoy nears the country, Alfelor said in a Facebook post that prayers are the best defense against disasters.
She urged her constituents to call on the heavens to make the typhoon dissipate outside the Philippine area of responsibility.
This is because if the typhoon maintains its trajectory, Iriga would be a target and it would arrive on Tuesday, bringing with it strong winds and rainwater.
We can always pray for a miracle!
“PRAYER the best defense from disasters: Let us all pray that the typhoon will just dissipate outside PAR, otherwise iriga is the target, expected to arrive on tuesday 7am. 160 to 190kph, with 137mm rainwater..,” Alfelor posted.
