    Phl official: Seek aid if worse comes to worst

    NATIONAL Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) executive director Alexander Pama on Monday urged local government officials to immediately seek their help should any disaster or calamity, beyond their capabilities to respond, strike their communities.
    Pama made this statement in wake of reports that Tropical Storm "Glenda" is expected to batter a large part of the Philippines Tuesday.
    "Come forward if you need help. It's not a problem if you would text us or reach out to us through social media," Pama stressed.
    The NDRRMC chief also requested for wholehearted cooperation of all local government officials so that disaster relief operations can begin immediately and smoothly.
    "Glenda," as of Monday noon was at 570 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes packing maximum sustained winds of 95 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of 120 kph.
    "To determine the situation, we need the cooperation of everybody and we will help you in your needs," he said.
    The provinces of Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, and Sorsogon were put under public storm warning signal no. 2, while Masbate including Burias and Ticao Islands, Marinduque, Quezon including Polillo Islands, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, Zambales, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Southern Aurora, Metro Manila, and Northern Samar were put under signal no. 1.
