‘ZORAIDA’ HITS NEGOR
Hundreds of residents were evacuated in Dumaguete City and other parts of Negros Oriental Tuesday night because of heavy rainfall brought by typhoon “Zoradida” that caused rivers and spillways to overflow.
The heavy rains started late afternoon and lasted for several hours although the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration had announced at noon Tuesday that “Zoraida” had weakened into a low pressure area, and public storm warning signal no. 1 hoisted over Negros Oriental and neighboring provinces that morning, had been lifted.
The Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Councils of the towns and cities and the provincial government deployed rescue groups and personnel and pre-positioned resources in anticipation of its impact.
