Cagayan PDRRMO Head Retired Col. Anatacio Macalad said all provincial rescue teams are already positioned in strategic areas across the province.
Local chief executives were also alerted and all Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) were also ordered to immediately respond to affected residents once evacuation is needed.
Rescue units are on standby to respond to residents particularly in low-lying areas and coastal towns specifically in the towns of Tuoao, Tuguegarao, Iguig, Lallo, Gonzaga, Appari, and Sanchez Mira.
Authorities, meanwhile, are calling on residents to cooperate with disaster officials for their safety.
“Kung ire-rescue sila sumama na. Huwag nang magmamatigas pa na magpaiwan, (If rescue authorities arrive, go at once. Do not insist on staying),” Macalad said.
“Kasi ang safety first ang kailangan dyan. Hayaan niyo muna ang ibang mga bagay diyan na maiwan. Iligtas muna yung sarili, (Safety first is our priority. Leave other things and save yourself first),” he concluded. MNP (with details from Joan Nano)
