Earthquake assistance
reaches P71.5 million

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council yesterday said the government has, so far, extended P71.56 million worth of aid to the victims of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Central Visayas last Oct. 15.

The P71,560,993.47 came from the departments of social welfare and development, of health, of local government units; and non-government organizations.

But the NDRRMC said more than 348,000 people in Bohol alone are still displaced in the wake of the deadly quake.

All Saints, Souls days
observance peaceful

The celebrations of All Saints’ and All Souls’ days in Central Visayas were generally peaceful, Chief Supt. Danilo Constantino, director of the Police Regional Office 7 based in Camp Sergio Osmeña in Cebu City, said yesterday.

Constantino said he visited cemeteries to ensure that the security plan of PRO-7 was in place.

Millions across the Catholic Philippines trooped to cemeteries to honor their dead in typically festive fashion on All Saints' Day, ignoring appeals from the Church to keep the day solemn.
