Boracay Island Affected By Habagat, Malay LGU Quickly Responds

Here’s the situation of Boracay Island due to habagat enhanced by Typhoon Hanna.

BORACAY ISLAND – Southwest monsoon intensifies forcing and pushing woods and trash to the shores of Bora.

One of the top islands in the Philippines is the Boracay Island.

Every day, thousands of tourists go here to unwind, to visit, and to personally see the fine white sands of the attraction. However, it is not every day that the weather is fine.

As of September 1, Hanna intensified into a typhoon category entering the country as soon as Goring left. To recall, Goring flooded many areas in the country and affected lives and livelihoods.

As per the September 1, 2023, 5 PM update of the state weather bureau PAGASA, Hanna maintained its strength as it decelerated westward. It also enhances the southwest monsoon or Habagat. It is forecasted to leave the Philippine area of responsibility on Sunday, September 3.

With the bad weather and strong winds, broken trees and lots of garbage were gathered on the shore of the famous island leaving an unpleasant site to the tourists and guests.

In a Facebook post from Aksyon Radyo Iloilo, a clearing operation has been immediately administered by the LGU (local government unit) of Malay. Beach cleaners, Boracay beach guard, Malay Auxiliary Police MAP, Malay Solid Waste, the Muslim Community, and the residents worked together to quickly get the work done leaving the shores of Bora spotless from broken trees and trash.
