LAOAG CITY, Ilocos Norte—Relief supplies and other essential supplies were flown by Philippine Air Force (PAF) helicopters to the disaster-hit areas in Ilocos Norte and Cagayan provinces.
In a statement Monday (October 24), PAF spokesman Col. Ma. Consuelo Castillo said two PAF UH-1H helicopters delivered a total of 4,604 pounds of relief supplies, consisting of food packages, medicines and fuel, to the Adams community in Ilocos Norte on Sunday.
Adams, one of the hardest-hit areas during the attack of Typhoon Neneng (international name: Nesat), has been “isolated” from the rest of the province after road infrastructure was devastated by the typhoon, authorities said.
A W-3A “Sokol” attack helicopter was also deployed in Calayan Town, Cagayan Town, to bring relief supplies to residents who were still suffering the effects of the weather disturbances, Castillo said. INQ
