Capitol girds for El Niño

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that the Negros Occidental provincial government is taking steps to mitigate the effects of El Niño, although the province is still experiencing some rain.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration confirmed yesterday that the country is currently experiencing a mild case of El Niño, that could prolong the dry season.

“The El Niño is associated with decrease in rainfall and higher temperature,” PAGASA climatologist Anthony Lucero said.moremoremore

2 governors
prioritize health

Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. and his counterpart in the Oriental side, Governor Roel Degamo, renewed their commitment to give health services delivery top priority under their administrations, a press release from the Capitol said yesterday.

Both governors joined the 18th anniversary on Monday of the Inapoy Community Primary Hospital located in the village bordering Mabinay town in Negros Oriental and Kabankalan City, serving 12 hinterland barangays that used to have difficulty accessing health care services.

The ICPH, established on March 9, 1997 by then Gov. Rafael Coscolluela and the late Gov. Emilio Macias II, was the first collaborative endeavour between the two provinces since discussions on the one island region concept began in May 1994. A second health facility being co-managed by both Occidental and Oriental was later built in Luz-Sikatuna to cater to Isabela and Guihulngan City indigents residing in upland communities.moremoremore

Still no positive ID of bodies
found in Palawan – police


Investigators still do not have positive identification of the male and female bodies found in a motorized banca off the coast of Barangay Mangsee in Balabac, Palawan.

The bodies had previously been identified, although unofficially, by those who claim to know them, as belonging to Cristina Andig, 19, of Barangay Maloh, Siaton in Negros Oriental, and her fiancé, Bradley Jay Fugate, 44, a U.S. citizen, and temporarily residing in Barangay Camanjac, Dumaguete City.

Both went missing at sea, along with four other Filipinos, after they left Maloh, Siaton last February 13 on a motorized banca purportedly to go tuna fishing but failed to return after several days.moremoremore
