REPASO 2018: Calamities, disasters and the wrath of Mayon

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, 1 January 2019 01:45 AM

 

Typhoon Ompong is the strongest tropical cyclone that hit the country this year.

Before dawn on September 14, Ompong wreaked havoc in the province of Cagayan.

Several houses and some hectares of plantations were destroyed by the typhoon.

Apart from Cagayan, Benguet, Isabela and Ilocos Region were also battered.

In Benguet, more than 70 people died in the landslide in Itogon during the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong.

In October, Typhoon Rosita entered the country and made its landfall.

Unlike Ompong, Rosita was weaker than Ompong however it barreled past Northern Luzon.

It wreaked havoc in the provinces of Isabela and other nearby provinces.

Aside from the Benguet landslide, a massive landslide also occurred in Naga, Cebu.

On September 20, a part of a mountain in Brgy. Tinaan collapsed.

More than 80 individuals were buried alive in the incident.

On August 28, Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) discovered a huge chunk of the mountain, which was then recommended as not threatening.

Naga mayor ordered the cease of quarrying in the area, however, MGB advised the resume of the operation.

But rock fissure went massive due to non-stop rain. Then the soil quality weakened and caused rock slides.

After the deadly incident, the local government decided to relocate the affected residents in the area.

Meanwhile, Mayon Volcano has started belching ashes in January.

PHIVOLCS has been monitoring the abnormal volcanic activities of Mayon since August 2017.

Due to its volcanic eruption, many nearby cities were covered with ashes.

Many plantations were damaged due to ashes which can caused health risks to residents.

Many residents residing within the 6-kilometer radius evacuated in fear of lava flow.

The volcanic activity lasted for a month.

National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said that they will further intensify their efforts to prepare Filipinos in times of calamities.

“Marami na tayo nagagawa kung tutuusin pero for a disaster-prone country like the Philippines, dapat palagi tayo nag-iinovate. We should continue to reinvent, not to reinvent but enchance kasi yung palagi nating sinasabi yung bago mag-Yolanda yung abnormal noon is the new normal now. So dapat level up din tayo hindi lang sa responde kundi sa pagaaral,” said NDRRMC Spokesperson Edgar Posadas.

Meanwhile, at the Congress, the proposed creation of Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR) has been passed and is awaiting the approval of the Senate.

The DDR is the primary agency to focus on preparation, response, and rehabilitation in areas struck by a calamity.

Once signed into law, the NDRRMC will be abolished. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

Hong Kong residents prepare for Typhoon Mangkhut

Hong Kong residents on Friday (September 14) were preparing for Super Typhoon Mangkhut to hit the city over the weekend bringing downpours and heavy winds.

The Hong Kong Observatory said it is likely to raise the maximum no.10 typhoon signal on Sunday (August 16), when the powerful typhoon is predicted to make landfall, and that heavy rain and the storm surge may cause flooding and a backflow of seawater in low-lying coastal areas.

Many Hong Kong residents stocked up on provisions, while others tried to protect their property by taping up windows and securing signs.

Mangkhut is first expected to barrel through the northernmost tip of the Philippines early on Saturday (September 15), carrying 205 kph (127 mph) wind speeds, and gusts of up to 255 kph (158 mph), that it has maintained since it struck Micronesia earlier in the week. — Reuters
