Storm surge warning up

Tropical storm "Domeng" has weakened to tropical depression and has also reduced its speed and continues to move west northwest, Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said yesterday.

The Department of Science and Technology’s Project Noah (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) yesterday, on the other hand, released a list of areas where storm surges may occur because of Tropical Storm “Domeng” (international name: Peipah).

The areas cited in the list included barangays in Cadiz and San Carlos cities in Negros Occidental.moremoremore

Pray vs. RH law,
bishop calls again

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday reiterated the call for stepped-up prayers that the Supreme Court justices declare the Reproductive Health Law  unconstitutional.

About 600  Catholics joined a prayer vigil at the San Sabastian Cathedral in Bacolod City,  while others gathered in  parishes and chaplaincies throughout the Diocese of Bacolod  last night in response to the bishop’s  call.

Navarra said the SC is set to hold its final deliberations today on the Constitutionality of the Reproductive Health Law, against which the Diocese of Bacolod has been adamant for years “because it does not contribute to authentic  progress and common good”.moremoremore
