By BBN Staff: Minister of National Emergency Management (NEMO), Edmond Castro and Orange North Area Representative, Gaspar Vega yesterday visited villages in that constituency that are being affected by flooding associated with the recent passage of the tropical system that became Tropical Storm Cristobal.
The two villages visited were San Roman and Douglas (along the Rio Hondo), where a total of 15 families (5 families in San Roman and 10 families in Douglas) have been severely affected, having to seek temporary shelter elsewhere.
“Vega and Castro have ensured that immediate assistance for these families is provided through the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO),” a statement from NEMO said.
Besides these families, the entire communities have generally been impacted, with agricultural crops damaged, and village infrastructure and community grounds flooded.
Castro and Vega also visited the village of San Antonio which is also affected.
