President Rodrigo Duterte declared a state of calamity in Regions I, II, III and the Cordillera Administrative Region to support relief operations and rehabilitation efforts in areas affected by typhoon “Ompong.”

“The declaration of the State of Calamity will hasten the rescue, recovery, relief, and rehabilitation efforts of the government and the private sector, including any international humanitarian assistance,” Proclamation No. 593 read.

The proclamation said placing the regions under state of calamity would “provide basis for price control measures which can mitigate the economic impact to affected populations, and effectively provide the governments ample latitude in the utilization of funds for recovery and rehabilitation efforts and delivery of basic needs and services.”

The directive was signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on September 25 but was only released to the media Thursday.

The oslaught of Ompong has reached to more than P18 billion in infrastructure and agricultural damages, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
