Ilocos Norte Imee Marcos on September 12 convened the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) as well as the frontline offices of the provincial government in preparation for the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said she wants to ensure rescue equipment and relief goods are ready.
Marcos also said early preparation is key to saving lives.
“Our priority is saving human lives,” she said.
“Pangalawa, ang damage to infrastructure, at pangatlo: yung ating livelihood na agriculture, at iba pang tourist destinations. Sana ngayon pa lang, lahat ay maghanda na,” Marcos added.
