City Mayor Alyssa Sheena P. Tan responded to the different evacuation center in the City of Santiago to personally hand the relief goods to the affected families because of Typhoon Paeng which raged the country last October 29, 2022.
After conducting a briefing with the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (LDRRMO) and other members of the council, Mayor Tan immediately drove to the areas reported by the barangays to distribute foods and other basic necessities of the evacuees. Along with her are the rescue teams composed of LDRRMO, Bureau of Fire Protection, City Mayor’s Office, General Services Offices, City Information, Culture and the Arts and Tourism Office, and other volunteers who fearlessly extend their hands and risk their lives for the Santiagueños.
On the other hand, LDRRMO reported zero casualties after the typhoon. Unfortunately in an interview at Radyo Kabsat, the City Agriculture Office, however, reported millions of income and profit loss for farmers due to 80%-90% damaged in their crops and fisheries as a result of flood.
