Floods kill 2, leave destruction;
States of calamity to be declared


Two cities are set to declare states of calamity following floods that hit northern Negros Occidental Tuesday that affected 8,996 families, caused the death of two, and destruction of houses and crops, officials said yesterday.

Heavy rains exacerbated by high tide triggered flooding in Talisay, Silay, Victorias and Bacolod cities, and EB Magalona.

Classes were suspended in some schools as the provincial and local governments delivered food assistance to those affected.moremoremore

Guv: Rivers need dredging

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said the provincial government will purchase a dredger to de-silt the rivers in Negros Occidental and prevent flooding.

Dredging of silt clogged waterways in the province to provide exits for water will help prevent rivers and their tributaries from overflowing during heavy rains, the governor said.

“We are looking for a dredger to purchase,” he added.
