Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba on September 11 convened the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) in preparation for the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong.
Typhoon Ompong is expected to hit the Cagayan-Batanes Area on September 15.
The Cagayan politiko said he wants to “prepare our people” by using the experience learned during Super Typhoon Lawin in October 2016.
Mamba said the devastation during Super Typhoon Lawin could happen again with Typhoon Ompong.
“Ito na ang tinatawag na ‘new normal.’ Sa pagdating ni Ompong, anything is possible. Posibleng mangyari muli ang naranasan natin noong Bagyong Lawin,” he said.
