Stay calm, guv calls
Gov. Roel Degamo has called on the people of Negros Oriental to stay alert but remain calm amid a tsunami alert level warning in the Philippines, following the 8.9 tremor that hit Japan yesterday afternoon.
Degamo has mobilized the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council to prepare for any eventuality, even as Joe Molas of the local office of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology has assured that Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental are not among the areas in the Philippines more likely to be hit by a tsunami, Adrian Sedillo of the Capitol said.
Chief Angelo Tiongson of the PDRRMC said local government units have already been warned to take the necessary precautionary measures, and ensure that people residing along the coastlines have also been alerted.
