Called for by City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan, the internal City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) convened last May 07, 2015 in preparation for the incoming Tropical Cyclone “Dodong”.

As shared by PAG-ASA Catbalogan’s Chief Meteorological Officer, Mr. Eduardo Dela Cruz, “Dodong” has slowed down as it continues to move in a west northwest direction packing sustained winds of 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph.

As it entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), Tropical Cyclone Dodong is set to hit the northern part of the country in the coming days.

Mayor Step ordered concerned offices of the city to prepare all necessary support and equipment as Dodong nears.
