Leni Robredo Visits Typhoon Odette-Hit Bohol

Vice Pres. Leni Robredo Flies to Bohol Following Odette’s Onslaught

LENI ROBREDO – The Vice President flew to Bohol which was left with no electricity following the onslaught of Typhoon Odette.

A lot of preparations were done prior to the entry of Typhoon Odette or Typhoon Rai in the international name. Its strength was forecasted before it entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and it urged the authorities to really make massive preparations. Several families in flood-prone areas across the nation were encouraged to evacuate.

Several cities and municipalities where storm signals were raised also canceled work for the safety of the people. Rescue teams prepared for risky instances that might arise amid the onslaught of Odette. The typhoon left a lot of people homeless.

Most of the damaged houses were due to the strong winds and heavy rain that flew their roofs. Others were destroyed after uprooted trees fell on those houses. Many families lost their source of living.

The moment they were permitted to fly to Bohol that was struck by Typhoon Odette, Vice Pres. Leni Robredo and his team visited the province to check on the situation. In a social media post, the Vice President stressed that updates were hard to come by and they were worried so they personally went to check on the situation and help.

According to Vice Pres. Robredo, the whole province has no electricity and only solar lights were working. There are still flooded areas and some places are still “unpassable”. She stressed that the local government with their leaders on the ground is already on the move for the road-clearing operations and the checking of the people.

Vice Pres. Leni Robredo expressed that communication lines in Bohol are still mostly down so the extent of the damage and the death toll were yet to be determined. Here’s the Facebook post of the Vice President:
