President Duterte wants permanent evacuation center in Albay

Legazpi, ALBAY — President Rodrigo Duterte has seen the congestion in evacuation centers in Albay.

For this reason, Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs, Francis Tolentino has received an order from the President to build a permanent evacuation center in the province.

The instruction was given at the Cabinet meeting last Monday.

“There was an instruction given to the National Housing Authority to develop a prototype of a permanent evacuation center,” said Tolentino.

When the plan pushes through, it will benefit all the municipalities directly affected by the eruption of Mt. Mayon.

Tabaco City Mayor Krisel Lagman-Luistro said that students will not be displaced anymore.

“We see that it is one of the best solutions to avoid actually displacement of learners during calamities,” said Luistro.

Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal plans to build the permanent evacuation center in a 20-hectare lot outside the city that he plans to purchase.

Mayor Rosal estimated that there are more than 4,000 families affected every time Mt. Mayon erupts.

“Pag-aaralan ko collapsible na in times of calamity saka lang natin ikakabit. Iyan ang maganda nating gawin,” said Rosal.

( Translation: I’m looking at a collapsible wherein it will be set up only during times of calamity. That is the best thing we can do.)

Currently, there are only more than 70,000  individuals staying in the evacuation centers.

This is after the provincial government sent home all those living beyond the extended 8-kilometer danger zone from the Mayon Volcano. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

Intel officer shot dead in Albay

Robie de Guzman   •   September 27, 2021

A police officer assigned as an intelligence warrant officer of the Guinobatan Municipal Police Station was killed by still unidentified gunmen, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said Monday.

PNP chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar said the police officer, identified as Police Staff Sergeant Allan Madelar, was gunned down in Barangay Peñafrancia where he attended a birthday party on Saturday night.

Eleazar said he has ordered the Police Regional Police Office 5 to immediately resolve Madelar’s killing.

“Inatasan ko na ang RD, PRO5, PBGen Jonnel Estomo na resolbahin kaagad ang kaso ng pagpaslang sa isa naming kasamahan sa Albay na si PSSgt Allan Madelar,” he said in a statement.

“Kasama dito ang pagsasagawa ng imbestigasyon upang matukoy ang motibo na magiging susi sa pagkakakilanlan ng mga taong nasa likod nito,” he added.

Eleazar appealed to those who witnessed the incident to come forward and help authorities in shedding light on the incident.

The PNP chief also expressed his condolences to the family of Madelar as he vowed that all necessary assistance would be provided to Madelar’s bereaved family.

“Nais ko iparating sa mga kaanak ni PSSgt Madelar ang pakikiramay ng buong PNP at tinitiyak ko sa kanila na hindi titigil ang kapulisan hangga’t hindi nadarakip at nasasampahan ng kaso ang mga salarin,” Eleazar said.

400 pasaherong stranded sa Pio Duran Port pinayagan nang makapasok sa Masbate

Aileen Cerrudo   •   August 25, 2021

Pinahintulutan na ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Masbate na makapasok sa probinsya ang 400 pasahero na apat na araw nang stranded sa Pio Duran port sa Albay dahil sa “no vaccine, no entry policy”.

Sa halip na pababalikin ang mga ito sa kanilang pinanggalingan ay isasailalim na lang sila sa antigen swab test ng local government unit (LGU) bago pasakayin ng barko.

Kinuha na rin ang kanilang mga pangalan at uuwiang LGU para sa proper coordination.

Ayon sa lokal na pamahalaan, ito na ang huling beses na papayagang nilang makauwi ang mga locally stranded individuals (LSI) na hindi pa bakunado.

Sa susunod na may magtatangkang papasok sa lalawigan na walang bakuna at sapat na dokumento ay sasampahan na ng kaso.

Ayon pa kay Masbate Governor Antonio Kho, layon ng “no vaccine, no entry policy” na hindi na makakalusot sa checkpoint ang mga colorum na sasakayan na namemeke ng mga dokumento.

“There is an increase in transmission of COVID-19 in the province of Masbate because of this colorum van that enters and fabricates documents,” aniya.

Mga pasaherong apat na araw nang stranded sa Albay, humihingi ng saklolo

Humuhingi ng saklolo ang mga pasaherong stranded sa Pio Duran Port sa Albay.

Ang pagdami ng mga locally stranded individual (LSI) sa Pio Duran Port ay bunsod umano ng “No Vaccine, No Entry” policy ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Masbate.

Patuloy pang nadagdagan ang mga stranded dahil sa patuloy na pagdating ng mga pasahero. Umabot na ito sa mahigit 400.

Nangangamba na rin ang mga pasahero dahil hindi na naipapatupad ang physical distancing lalo na sa gabi tabi-tabi na sa pagtulog.

Para makagamit ng palikuran kailangan magbayad ng halagang P5 hanggang P30 pesos sa paliligo.

Tanging karton ang kanilang nahihigaan at ang ilang mga bata may dinaramdam ng sakit dahil sa naranasang pag-ulan.

Ayon sa mga pasahero, pahirap ng pahirap ang kanilang kalagayan dahil wala namang tulong o ayuda na natatanggap mula sa pamahalaang panlalawigan ng Albay.

Umaasa ang mga stranded na pasahero na matugunan ang suliranin nila at mapayagan ng makabyahe pauwi ng Masbate. AAC (mula sa ulat ni Gerry Galicia)
