Cadiz worst hit,
losses P200 million

BY CARLA GOMEZ

Damage to houses and government infrastructure in Cadiz City that was the worst-hit by super typhoon “Yolanda” in Negros Occidental has reached P200 million, Mayor Patrick Escalante said yesterday.

Close to 20,000 houses in Cadiz City were damaged and destroyed by “Yolanda”. Even his house was damaged when Yolanda blew off part of its roof, Escalante said.

But the people of Cadiz are starting to rebuild their houses, they have the resilient Filipino spirit in them to be able to smile even after being hit by a storm, he said.

Also damaged in Cadiz City were school buildings and other government infrastructure, he added.

Escalante said the estimated P200 million in damages does not include the super typhoon’s damage to crops in Cadiz City yet.

Classes have not resumed in the city as school buildings are still being used as evacuation centers, he said.

It is hoped the power and classes in Cadiz City can resume by Wednesday, he said.*CPG
