Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said the municipal government will hold a Kankanaey ritual to appease the souls of the victims of Supertyphoon Ompong.
More than 100 died due to landslides in Level 70 in Ucab in September 2018.
The Benguet politiko said they will conduct the “pamakan” to “with the hope that such tragic incident will not again happen in the locality in the future.”
He also said the event will also be a thanksgiving for all those who assisted the town.
“We want to appease the souls of those who were victims of the calamity so that they will help in ensuring that the municipality will be spared from the future wrath of weather disturbances,” Palangdan said.
