Vice Pres. Leni Robredo, Actress Kris Aquino in Relief Operations in Kabankalan City
LENI ROBREDO – Actress-TV host Kris Aquino joined the Vice President in relief operations for Typhoon Odette victims in Kabankalan City.
A lot of Filipinos were greatly affected by Typhoon Odette. It is one of the strongest typhoons that have hit the Philippines and it cost lives and brought massive destruction of properties.
The forecasts about the intensity of Typhoon Odette urged preparations that include preemptive evacuations in areas that are prone to flood. However, undeniably, Odette or internationally called Rai left a mark with its strength.
Several cities in the Philippines were submerged in floodwater due to Typhoon Odette. Communication and electric lines are still out in several parts of the country now. Many families lost their homes and their source of living.
Some of those houses that were damaged amid the onslaught of Typhoon Odette got destroyed by the strong wind. Others were damaged after falling trees hit it. Floodwater covered the whole city proper in some cities in the country.
One of the cities greatly affected by Typhoon Odette is Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental. Currently, the province is under the State of Calamity. The city proper of Kabankalan was filled with floodwater and mud is all around the areas after the flood receded.
Several incumbent politicians personally came to Kabankalan City following the onslaught of Typhoon Odette. One of them is Vice President Leni Robredo. Based on a post on PhilStar, she’s joined by actress-TV host Kris Aquino in relief operations held at Barangay Daan Banua.
Aside from Kabankalan City, Vice Pres. Robredo has also visited and brought relief assistance in several Odette-hit areas including Bohol. She and her team flew to Bohol as soon as they were cleared for travel.
