Negros supplier: PNP


Chief Inspector Mark Anthony Darroca, chief of the Negros Occidental Poilce Provincial Office anti-drug unit, yesterday confirmed that a suspected drug lord, who was killed last week in Metro Manila, had also been operating in Negros island.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology yesterday warned that aside from more possible minor eruptions, rocks and volcanic debris deposited along the slopes of Mt. Kanlaon are also a danger to nearby communities.

A phreatic explosion at the volcano Saturday caused it to spew steam and ash that rose 1,500 meters above the crater, and lasted for 27 minutes. moremoremore
