MANILA, Philippines – A team of 30 private motorcycle riders from the nationwide RACERS group – a partner of Rappler's civic engagement arm, MovePH – left Manila on Thursday, October 20, to assess the needs of people and conditions in areas affected by typhoon Lawin (Haima).
Their goal is to conduct a rapid assessment of the road networks connecting the typhoot hit provinces.
Two teams are expected to head to Cagayan and parts of Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. They will provide regular reports to the Office of Civil Defense and Agos eBayanihan.
