Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has ordered the pre-emptive evacuation of coastal barangays in the nation’s capital in preparation for Typhoon “Tisoy.”
Personnel from Manila Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (MDRRMO) coordinated with barangay officials following the order of the Mayor to execute a pre-emptive evacuation of coastal barangays.
“Kasi po mas ninanais namin na mailigtas kayo sa anumang posibleng kapahamakan nitong darating na bagyo,” he said.
Residents from Baseco, Islang Puting Bato, Aroma, and Happy Land will be housed in evacuation centers in Manila. The said areas are coastal villages facing the risk of storm surges and strong winds from the typhoon.
Aside from the evacuation, the Mayor also ordered the suspension of local government work on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
The suspension excludes social workers and emergency responders.
