Bukas kami! Alitagtag Mayor Edilberto Ponggos says town not on lockdown
hile Alitagtag is one of the Batangas towns that experienced ash fall from Taal Volcano’s eruption, it is not on lock down, Mayor Edilberto Ponggos made clear in a Facebook post.
Ponggos said the false information resulted from a radio interview with a provincial disaster risk reduction and mitigation officer.
But there was apparently a mistake as Alitagtag is still accessible
The mayor said the false information only heightens people’s worry, as he sought to correct it.
He said the roads of Alitagtag are passable and passenger jeepneys are plying their routes.
Be careful in spreading information, people have enough to worry about!
“Magandang araw po!
Kamakailan, kumalat ang balita na ang Bayan Ng Alitagtag ay lockdown dahil sa naging pahayag ni PDRRMO Lito Castro sa DZMM. Ito po ay HINDI TOTOO. Ang ganito pong balita ay nagbibigay lalo ng pangamba sa mga tao.
Dagdag pa rito, maaari pong daanan ang mga kalsada dito sa atin. May mga dumadaan na ulit pong byaheng jeep,” Ponggos posted.
