The Eastern Mindanao Command again appealed for donors to coordinate first with the incident command post to facilitate the relief assistance for the quake victims.
Lt. Col. Ezra Balagtey, the spokesperson of EastMinCom, said, “Let us help put order in our disaster response.”
“All organizations and individuals who wanted to provide intervention and assistance in the earthquake stricken areas are being advised to check-in and coordinate with the established incident command post,” Balagtey said.
On Dec. 16, as part of the rapid damage assessment and needs analysis, an aerial survey was conducted by the Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council led by Mayor Caminero of Padada, Davao del Sur.
Minor landslides were observed in mountainous portions and coastlines of the municipalities of Padada, Kiblawan, Hagonoy, and Sulop.
On Sunday also, troops from 72nd Infantry Battalion were immediately dispatched to conduct clearing operations in a road in Balabag, Kidapawan City, North Cotabato. The road closed due to a landslide brought about by the 6.8 magnitude quake that struck parts of Southern Mindanao.
Units in the affected areas are closely coordinating with the different local disaster risk reduction officers for the Rapid Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis, and search and rescue operations.
