Typhoon Juan: PRC set for Watsan Assessment and Relief Distribution
Provinces currently placed under signal no. 3, including Cagayan, Isabela, Kalinga, Mt. Province and Ifugao, will be the priority of the assessment and watsan teams.
With the declaration of state of calamity in Isabela, the PRC chapter in the province needs human resources and logistics support of PRC National Headquarters.
In response, PRC purchased sacks of rice, boxes of noodles and cases of sardines for distribution to Isabela and other areas.
PRC volunteers and staff are likewise readying prepositioned emergency supplies such as blankets, hygiene kits and beddings for distribution to highly affected provinces. These supplies are sufficient to serve thousands of families.
PRC is also ready to provide emergency health and hygiene to communities in the affected areas.
In case family members get separated during the height of the supertyphoon, social workers of PRC are on standby to restore family links.
As of this writing, 909 families (3,732 persons) have been reported to be staying in 22 evacuation centers in Cagayan, Kalinga, Isabela and La Union.
The provinces of Apayao, Kalinga, Aurora, La Union and Isabela are currently experiencing power interruption due to Typhoon Juan.
