LUCENA CITY – Quezon province’s  provincial disaster management operation center was placed on red alert status by Governor Angelina Tan as of Saturday as Super Typhoon Karding (international name: Noru) roars closer to land.

Tan also ordered the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council and their local counterparts to heighten the monitoring of their respective areas of responsibility and immediately provide situational reports.

She also tasked local authorities to prepare residents of disaster-prone communities for the pre-emptive evacuation in localities along the forecast track of “Karding.”

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in Quezon suspended the sailing of all vessels.
