BY CARLA GOMEZ
Representatives of the National Housing Authority, sent through the Office of the President, went to the second district of Negros Occidental that was badly hit by super typhoon Yolanda, to offer to build 5,000 houses there, Acting Governor Salvador Escalante said yesterday.
Escalante, who is acting governor while Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson are out of the country, said badly hit in the second district were Cadiz and Sagay cities and Manapla town.
A massive relocation project is being undertaken in Cadiz City, which includes the relocation of 200 families from Lakawon Island that was devastated by the typhoon, to the mainland barangay of Cadiz Viejo, he said.
