As Region 7 prepares for a strong typhoon, 45K food packs are prepared.

According to a regional social welfare official, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has prepared 45,000 family food packs (FFP) at its facility in Mandaue City in case Typhoon Mawar strikes the Visayas region.

The DSWD-7 regional director, Shalaine Marie Lucero, stated that several local government units (LGU) in the Visayas have prepositioned half of the FFPs.

According to Lucero, we have water, non-food supplies, and a quick response team ready to go.

To prepare for the typhoon known as “Betty” after it approaches the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), LGUs in Cebu province are on notice.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Harold Alcontin in Cebu City stated that the “blue alert” designation would not be lifted until the typhoon left the PAR.

The City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council announced the alert status on Tuesday and went into force on Wednesday.

“Atong tanang resources are on standby; therefore, it is possible that ulan mobundak.” To handle the accessibility issue in the event of a landslide, ato should check its heavy machinery. (All of our resources, especially those in the highlands where it might rain, are ready. To remedy the accessibility issue, we will examine the heavy machinery,” Alcontin informed reporters in this location.

Personnel assigned to the CDRRMO are prohibited from taking a leave of absence following the issue of the alert status until the typhoon exits the PAR or until a warning is lifted.

Despite news that the weather alert on “Betty” has been lowered from Super Typhoon to a simple Typhoon category as it somewhat weakened Wednesday morning, Mayor Michael Rama said he would prefer preventative measures.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Betty, also known as “Mawar,” is anticipated to land in PAR by Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Mawar was last observed 2,170 kilometers east of the Visayas, according to the weather agency, and has a maximum sustained wind speed of up to 175 kph and a maximum gust speed of up to 215 kph.
