Grace Poe's text statement on the Lanao del Norte landslide

We trust that help is on the way for the landslide victims in Tubod, Lanao del Norte.

We know that rescue and relief efforts are dangerous for our rescue workers because of the condition in the area. Thus, those involved in this effort must also take caution.

When the affected residents have been secured, we call on concerned government agencies and local government units to take time to study the geohazard map and plan accordingly using this as guide.

The map will show us the danger zones and other areas that may be perilous for habitation.

Disaster preparation and mitigation should be at the center of every program of local government units as we face the realities of climate change.

We pray for strength and resilience for the victims, as we gather support to make them overcome this tragedy, especially this holiday season.
