The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) mobilized its staff and volunteers in preparation as Tropical Storm Maring made landfall, placing parts of Northern Luzon to Signal No. 2.
PRC Cagayan Chapter conducts pre-emptive evacuation to 42 families from zone 7 in landslide-prone areas in Baggao, Cagayan. Twenty-two families in Pamplona were also evacuated, due to the rising water levels.
“Patuloy ang ating pagtulong sa panahon ng bagyo. 24/7 naka tutok ang ating PRC Operation Center sa iba’t ibang lugar na apektado ng TS Maring nang sa gayon ay mabilis ang ating pag responde kapag nagka emergency,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC continues to monitor TS Maring for possible evacuation of the residents. Despite the ongoing pandemic, PRC deploys its staff and volunteers to be of service to the most vulnerable, truly abiding by its mantra to be always first, always ready, and always there.
