Naka-alerto na ang lokal na pamahalaan ng Camarines Sur sa posibleng pagkakaroon ng storm surge bunsod ng malakas na hanging dala ng bagyong Ambo.

Ayon sa Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC), partikular nilang tinututukan ang coastal areas ng bayan ng Pasacao dahil sa matataas at naglalakihang along humahampas sa dalampasigan nito sa gitna ng pananalasa ng bagyong Ambo.

Una nang ibinabala ng Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) ang pagkakaroon ng hanggang apat na metrong storm surge o daluyong dahil sa bugso ng hanging dala ni Ambo.

Sa pinakahuling ulat ng PAGASA, huling namataan ang bagyo sa layong 40 kilometro sa katimugang bahagi ng Infanta, Quezon.

Taglay nito ang lakas ng hanging aabot sa 100 kilometro kada oras (kph) at pagbugsong nasa 140 kph. Kumikilos ito sa direksyon ng hilagang-kanluran sa bilis na 20 kph.

Ayon sa PAGASA, bahagyang humina ang bagyo matapos itong mag-landfall ng anim na beses.

Una itong tumama sa lupa sa San Policarpio, Eastern Samar noong Huwebes ng tanghali; sunod mga isla ng Dalupiri at Capul sa Northern Samar bandang Huwebes ng gabi; sunod sa Ticao at Burias Islands sa Masbate noong Biyernes ng madaling-araw at pang-huli sa San Andres, Quezon Biyernes ng umaga.

Inaasahang ngayong gabi, sa pagitan ng ala-singko at ala-siyete, ay muling tatama ang bagyo sa Real o Infanta, Quezon.

Ayon sa PAGASA, patuloy na makararanas ng malakas na pag-ulan ang mga lugar ng Quezon, Marinduque, Aurora, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya at Quirino.

Malakas na pag-ulan rin ang inaasahan ngayong gabi hanggang bukas, araw ng Sabado sa Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos, Central Luzon, Nueva Vizcaya at Quirino.

Alleged CPP-NPA official arrested in Camarines Sur

Aileen Cerrudo   •   December 4, 2020

The Philippine Army has arrested an alleged official of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) in Camarines Sur.

Marilou Pascual Tan or alias Tinay is now in the custody of the Tinambac Municipal Police Station.

Authorities said Tinay is among the high-value individuals arrested for frustrated murder.

Tinay is allegedly the secretary of Komiteng Probinsya 2 of the Bicol Regional Party Committee (BRPC) of the CPP-NPA.

Police authorities recovered anti-personnel mines, hand grenades, .38 caliber gun, and propaganda materials.

Brigade Commander of the 902nd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army, Col. Jaime Abawag Jr. said they managed to track Tinay down after receiving a tip from several residents.

“This development is a manifestation of the continuous collapse of the CTG (communist terrorist groups). Their very own people are now siding with the government and exposing their own top leaders who are supposedly well-insulated,” he said.

Abawag also encourages residents to immediately report suspicious individuals in their area. -AAC (with reports from Allan Manansala)

Unpassable roads due to Typhoon Ambo isolate two worst-hit municipalities in E. Samar

Maris Federez   •   May 17, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The municipalities of Jipapad and Maslog remain isolated as all roads leading to them are still unpassable after the onslaught of Typhoon Ambo which caused severe flooding and fallen trees and debris scattered along the highway.

In a message received by UNTV News, Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone said that Jipapad and Maslog were the two worst-hit municipalities in the province by the typhoon.

“I have received reports that the flood in Jipapad reached up to the 2nd floor of houses. I’m worried about the people there, especially the elderly and children. I hope and pray that there are no casualties in the two municipalities,” said Evardone.

The governor added that the teams from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the provincial government, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) have tried to penetrate all roads leading to the two municipalities but to no avail.

“We will try again today to access those towns. Electricity and communication lines to the two municipalities are cut off,” Evardone concluded. — /mbmf
