Typhoon Gorio spares PHL


ALBAY – The Bicol region survived the strong typhoon that hit the country in the past few days, thanks to the disaster risk reduction plan of many local governments.


No casualties has been reported as typhoon Gorio pounded Albay, Metro Manila and the rest of the country. However, on Saturday, some 2,309 families were evacuated to safer grounds in 14 flood-prone areas in the towns of Sto Domingo, Libon, Oas, Pio Duran and Jovellar in Albay.


A Vietnamese vessel was also washed ashore in Barangay Baybay Centro in Legazpi City. The vessel is said to be carrying around 94,000 bags of suspected smuggled rice from Vietnam.
