Firecracker warehouse
explodes, triggers panic

A very loud explosion coming from Purok Lopez, Barangay Vista Alegre in Bacolod City, rocked the earth and emitted a strong smell of explosives shortly after 8:30 last night, causing panic and fear among many residents in the eastern part of Bacolod City.

Some residents who heard the explosion from a distance said they thought that an airplane had crashed, because it sounded as if the blasts were coming from a moving object in the sky.

But Vista Alegre Barangay CaptainEman Rectra said the loud explosion that was heard even in neighboring barangays came from firecracker warehouse that exploded, and only one person sustained minor injuries.moremoremore

I’m eligible to run,
Cuenca says

The candidate for member of the Board of Directors of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative District 1, Joyce Martha Cuenca, said that she was declared eligible to run for the post by the District Election Committee.

Cuenca, wife of former director Luis Cuenca, said she has submitted all the requirements that the DECOM required as well as her answer to the complaint filed by Rommel Jamelo, who sought her disqualification, within the prescribed period.

Regional Trial Court Judge Rosario Ester Orda-Caise of Branch 48 issued a 20-day restraining order Friday stopping CENECO from holding the election in District 1 Saturday upon the request of Jamelo and 10 barangay captains under District 1 as intervenors in the case.moremoremore
