Better safe than sorry: Ilocos Norte urges tourists to shy away from province until ‘Lawin’ passes over

Oct 19, 2016 @ 20:44

With Super typhoon “Lawin” now threatening a huge part of Northern Luzon, the Ilocos Norte Tourism Office has advised all tourists to refrain from visiting the province until the weather disturbance has left the country.

In a local travel advisory addressed to local government units and private tourism stakeholders in the province, Ilocos Norte Tourism Office operations officer Ian Raquel said tourist spots like the Kapurpurawan Rocks Formation in Burgos, Malacanang of the North in Laoag, Presidential Center in Batac and other Marcos Heritage Trail facilities, Arte Luna Gallery, Pagudpud beach park, sand dunes and other government-owned tourism facilities will be closed until further notice.

Going to the beach and other high risk areas for swimming, hiking and trekking are also not recommended as of this time.

As “Lawin” is now slowly being felt in the province with light to moderate rains, the Laoag International Airport has already announced flight cancellations until Friday, October 20.
