#ReliefPH operations to help #LandoPH victims
Already, local governments in Aurora and nearby towns as well as the public have reported severe wind damage to buildings and dangerous road conditions. The public can expect more reports to come in as the day progresses.
The government and civic organizations have taken proactive measures to ensure goods and supplies needed for response are prepositioned. The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) prepositioned resources with more than P18,400,000 standby funds, 196,737 family food packs, and P158,164,761.76 worth of food and non-food items available.
Rappler, together with its Agos partners, are compiling a list of ongoing relief operations and disaster response organizations that are mobilizing to aid communities affected by disaster. Our agos partners include: Ateneo de Manila's eBayanihan, Philippine Red Cross, World Vision, the Australian Government, Team48, Bike Scouts, National Youth Commission, Philippine Disaster Response Foundation and YesPinoy.
Help us crowdsource information and populate this list. If you know of an ongoing relief operation or an organization preparing to respond, please provide us with information via the following communication channels:
- Message us via our MovePH Facebook page
- Tweet us via on our Project Agos or Rappler Twitter Accounts
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Post directly on the Agos Alert Map
- Inform any of our partners above
- Post in the comments section below
Please include "#ReliefPH" in all your posts.
In addition to crowdsourcing social media reports of flooded areas, requests for rescue, and critical information such as the status of roads and bridges, Project Agos, eBayanihan volunteers, and Agos partners are also getting status reports from various government and volunteer responder units, such as the Pasig City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office and the UP Mountaineers Search and Rescue. This is plotted on the Agos Alert Map, in order to better coordinate rescue and relief efforts within Northern and Central Luzon.
NDRRMC reminds responders to notify the Office of Civil Defense before deploying to Northern or Central Luzon to ensure proper coordination.
With the transition from response operations to recovery, this map will no longer be updated, and will reflect the situation effective 6:00 p.m., Friday, October 23, 2015.
