Revilla Calls for Flood Control Projects: Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. calls for the rehabilitation of forests during a hybrid hearing on several resolutions looking into the country’s flood control programs and harvesting of rainwater runoffs Wednesday, November 25, 2020. Typhoons in the Philippines, Revilla noted, is a common occurrence having around 20 typhoons visiting the country annually. “Just because we are in the path of these typhoons we should readily accept it as the way things are. I believe there is an urgent need for proper infrastructure and intervention in managing flood waters,” Revilla said. He cited the massive flood control projects in the Netherlands and Japan to protect the people from flooding. (Screen grab/Senate PRIB)
