Dinagat Islanders get P1M for repair of their seawall and water system

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo today gave a P1-million check to this municipality for the immediate repair and rehabilitation of its seawall and water system which was damaged when a storm struck this island last Jan. 10.

The President handed the check to Tubajon Mayor Ronaldo Luib during her visit here this afternoon.

A storm struck the municipality of Tubajon last Jan. 10 while most of the residents were at home sleeping.

Luib, in an interview, said the storm surge brought thousands of gallons of sea water into their town and immediately overwhelmed and inundated their seawall and water system.

A total of 872 families here were affected by the storm which also affected the nearby towns of Libgo and Loreto.

Prior to her awarding of the check-donation, the President, who arrived here at around 1:30 p.m., was given a briefing by Luib on the devastation wrought by the storm.

He said P5 million would be needed to rebuild the damaged portion of the seawall while P500,000 is needed to repair the water system.

The President then led the initial distribution of food packs to some 1,300 families from the nine barangays of Tubajon and nearby municipalities which were affected by the storm.

Luib thanked the President for taking the time to empathize with his provincemates who are still suffering from the effects of the storm surge.

The donation, he said, would go a long way in alleviating their plight.
