Senior Deputy Majority Leader Sandro Marcos doesn’t want to take any risks with his beloved Kakailians (brothers to the north) when it comes to potentially destructive typhoons.
That’s why the Ilocos Norte 1st District congressman called on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to help him put together a topographical assessment of his area.
“In light of Typhoon Karding, we are creating a master plan for evacuation centers in the 1st district of Ilocos Norte. They will be powered by solar charging and sufficient provisions to help our Kakailians displaced after being affected by natural disasters,” Marcos wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday, September 28.
“Thank you to the DENR for helping us identify the areas most prone to landslides and flooding,” the presidential son added.
Earlier this week Typhoon “Karding” passed through Luzon, but luckily most of the region was spared flooding. This has been attributed to its weakening by the Sierra Madre mountain range, which for centuries protected Luzon from such weather events.
Marcos, 28, is a new member of the House of Representatives. The House adjourned after Wednesday’s session and will not meet again until November 7, 2022.
