By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte is visiting areas affected by Taal Volcano’s eruption in Batangas province again on Monday, his spokesman confirmed.
“All the major agencies and department heads are going to attend,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters in Malacañang on Friday.
Panelo said Duterte will check on the situation of the families affected by the disaster assess whether additional measures are needed.
“Walang situation briefing. Bibistahin niya yung mga lugar, affected areas (and evacuees)… Para alam niya ang sitwasyon doon (at) kung kailangan magdagdag ng measures,” according to him.
On January 14, Duterte led a situation briefing in Batangas City and distributed calamity assistance to over 1,000 families.
