Residents of Barangay Roxas District in Quezon City flock to their designated evacuation center since Tuesday (Dec. 3).
Some of them admitted that they are used to leaving their homes and seeking safer grounds during typhoon season as they are situated in a flood-prone area.
“Minsan po kasi hanggang bubong po eh. 2nd floor po kami umaabot po ng hanggang bubong hanggang sa amin. Kasi nung habagat inabot po iyong bubong naming,” a resident identified as Vivian Naquin said.
The evacuees stayed in 27 modular tents. They were also handed out food packs.
“Pagka may mga disaster na ganito bumababa dito ang mga social workers may mga dala silang mya cooked food but now nagset up sila dito ng kitchen so ang dala nila last night is bigas tas dito sila magluluto,” said Barangay Captain Tatta Gotladera. (from the report of Mai Bermudez) /mbmf
