Alerted by situational reports coming from the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) of Mariveles, the Provincial Government of Bataan (PGB) immediately responded by deploying staff of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) to distribute 940 bags of relief goods, each bag containing 6 kilos of rice and canned goods to families affected by the rough sea conditions elevated on the coastal areas last November 7.
The next day, despite strong waves, relief operations continued in the evacuation center in Barangay Biaan conducted jointly by the PSWDO and Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO). The Provincial Information Office (PIO) and other agencies were also there.
PSWDO Head Marilyn Tigas personally supervised the distribution in Barangays Balon Anito and Ipag which were the first to be advised by the MDRRMO to take preemptive evacuation.
During relief operations, affected residents were assured that the government will continue extending them assistance until such time that they can go back to their normal lives.
