Now available in seven Ilocos Norte clustered districts are food packs.

In anticipation of the potential arrival of a super typhoon in the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) between Friday night and Saturday morning, hundreds of food packs have been prepositioned in seven clustered regions of the province of Ilocos Norte.

As aid supplies were being packed and prepositioned from the main warehouse to the clustered regions beginning on Wednesday, provincial social welfare and development official Lilian Rin confirmed this on Thursday.

Local government units (LGUs) in this area are taking no chances despite Tropical Cyclone Mawar’s mild weakening from a super typhoon, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

In a media interview on Thursday, Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc stated that the required resources and logistics were set up to provide a rapid response in an emergency. “It is better to be prepared even if an incoming typhoon may not directly hit us,” he added.

Ilocos Norte’s northeastern region is currently seeing sporadic showers, while the city itself is still experiencing exceptionally high temperatures, with a heat index of up to 42 degrees Celsius.

Adams town, frequently cut off during bad weather, is currently getting a solar charging station from the office of Rep. Ferdinand Alexander Marcos from the first district of Ilocos Norte.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has heavy machinery ready to go in the landslide-prone Pancian neighborhood in Pagudpud town along the Manila North Road.

In a Zoom conference on Thursday, Engr. Jocelyn Oamar, a representative of the DPWH in Region 1, stated that “almost the entire mountain in Pancian, Pagudpud eroded in the previous typhoon, and it took more than a month for clearing.”

As the province strives for zero casualties and little damage during a tragedy, all citizens who live in low-lying and landslide-prone areas have been urged to be vigilant and prepared.

In the next 12 hours, Typhoon Mawar is predicted to travel mainly north-northwestward and pass over the Philippine Sea.

It will be named “Betty” as it joins the PAR on Friday night or Saturday early. It would be the first storm for this month and the second storm this year to enter the PAR.
