MANILA, Philippines — It seems that all is now well between Talisay Vice Mayor Charlie Natanauan and Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) police chief Brig. Gen, Vicente Danao when they crossed paths during a Senate hearing on Thursday.

The Senate Committee on Urban Planning, Housing, and Resettlement is conducting a hearing on the formulation of a sustainable Taal Volcano resettlement and rehabilitation program following the volcano’s eruption which displaced thousands of residents.

“General Danao nandiyan si Vice Mayor a? Bati na kayo? Ngayon lang ba kayo nagkita?” Senator Francis Tolentino, who was doing a roll call of the resource persons for the hearing, asked the Calabarzon police chief in jest.

“Vice Mayor si General Danao may kamag-anak sa Talisay. Yung tiyuhin niya,” the senator said, this time addressing Natanauan.

Danao earlier warned Natanauan that he will be thrown into the Taal Volcano as a “sacrifice” should residents listen to the latter and return to their homes in the lockdown areas.

Danao’s warning came after the Talisay vice mayor in a radio interview, appealed to President Rodrigo Duterte to have the opinion on the Taal Volcano’s situation of Philippine Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) Director Dr. Renato Solidum “changed.”

“Masyado niyang (Solidum) pinalala ang sitwasyon ng balita,” Natanauan had said.

(He is just  making the situation worse.)

“Sabi niya kasi masyado daw malakas itong putok na susunod, nagi-ipon lamang. Opinyon niya ‘yun,” he added, referring to Solidum.

(He said it will erupt next time, it’s just gathering energy. That is just his opinion.)
