On Thursday, Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano asked the city council to declare the city in a state of calamity after 18 out of 28 barangays were submerged in floodwaters.
Cayetano, the chairperson of the local disaster risk reduction and management council, said in a statement that should the councilors approve her request, the city government would be able to use its calamity funds to rehabilitate roads and infrastructure damaged by the weather disturbance.
“I appeal to our city council to immediately place Taguig under a state of calamity so we can tap our Quick Response Fund. In these trying times, we should set aside any political differences. This is the time our constituents need our support the most and we should not forsake them,” she added.
