MAKE SHIFT tents are now be­ing set – up in Tanudan, Kalinga af­ter class­rooms in Gakalan Ele­men­tary School in Barangay Lugu were taken by flood wa­ter dur­ing Typhoon Rosita’s on­slaught.

Tanudan Mayor John­well Ti­gan­gay said they have co­or­di­nated with gov­ern­ment line agen­cies who will pro­vide tents to be placed at a higher area of Lugu and Gakalan for the stu­dents to use when they re­turn to school af­ter the week­end.

This con­cern have also been for­warded to the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion in Kalinga to pro­vide ma­te­ri­als to be used by the stu­dents and teach­ers since they were not able to re­trieve books and other learn­ing ma­te­ri­als from the

school.

“We are now iden­ti­fy­ing the tem­po­rary area where the tents for the stu­dents and teach­ers would be placed and we have co­or­di­nated with the Na­tional Grid Cor­po­ra­tion of the Philip­pines for the pos­si­bil­ity of them to pro­vide us with the tents,” Ti­gan­gay said.

Evac­uees from the low ly­ing ar­eas of Kalinga have been ad­vised by the Of­fice of the Civil De­fense to re­frain from go­ing back to their homes due to the con­tin­u­ous rise of wa­ter of the Ca­gayan river af­ter the re­lease of wa­ter coming from Ma­gat Dam in Is­abela Prov­ince.
