As Signal No. 2 was raised over Albay, Governor Joey Salceda has instructed all disaster coordinating councils in the provincial, city and municipal levels to be ready to evacuate residents in lahar, flood and landslide prone areas; and suspended all weekend school-related activities.
He also directed officials to ensure that no small sea vessels would be allowed to leave ports and for local disaster authorities to strictly implement the prohibition on crossing of flooded waters, swollen rivers and artificial pools of water.
