MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte will “most likely” place the Bicol region, Mimaropa, and Calabarzon under a state of calamity due to the damage caused by Typhoon Rolly, Malacañang said Monday.

“Most likely po pero ‘antayin na natin iyong papel mismo na manggagaling sa tanggapan ng Presidente,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in an online briefing when asked if the said regions will be placed under a state of calamity.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) earlier recommended placing the three regions under a state of calamity due to the damage it incurred following Typhoon Rolly’s brunt.
