Local authorities went on a house-to-house visitation and forced around 4,500 residents in Camarines Sur to evacuate before the expected landfall of Typhoon Tisoy in the Bicol Region between Monday night and Tuesday morning. 

The Camarines Sur Provincial Government said they evacuated residents of Cabusao, Minalabac, Caramoan, Garchitorena, Sagnay, Siruma, Tigaon, Tinambac, and Buhi.

“Based po sa PAGASA, ang Lagonoy area ay isa sa target, redzone… Daraanan tayo ng mata ng bagyo,” explained Lagonoy Fire Bureau official Roberto Sta. Clara.

The LGU also guaranteed enough supply of relief goods to the residents. 

In Albay, residents were evacuated from their homes to protect themselves from the incoming typhoon.

In Naga City, almost 700 individuals were brought into the evacuation centers.

In Calaca, Batangas, policemen went on a house-to-house visitation to alert the residents who live near the sea of the possible effect of Tisoy while 40 barangay captains met to discuss the city’s safety.

In Virac, Catanduanes, however, residents were lining up at hardware stores to buy construction materials which they can use to reinforce their houses.

The local disaster management office in Roxas, Oriental Mindoro started packing relief goods such as rice, canned goods, and instant noodles.
