Ralph Recto urges Duterte admin to prepare country for typhoons

Sep 12, 2018 @ 18:11

Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto called on the government to prepare the country to weather the coming storms.

The Batangas politiko said the Duterte administration “should be able to distinguish between a tempest in a teacup involving a few and a Category 5 storm which may put millions in harm’s way.”

“We have been lucky to be spared of typhoons recently. This act of God of blessing us with good weather is what is preventing the problems caused by lack of good governance from tailspinning,” Recto said.

He reiterated he does not want to sound alarmist.

“When a typhoon hits, it doesn’t choose its targets based on their political affinity. There are no Yellows or DDS or Reds when calamity strikes,” Abu said.
