MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has finished debris-clearing of national highways in regions 6, 7, and 8 to accelerate relief distribution, Secretary Herminio Coloma of the Presidential Communications Operations Office said Thursday.

“This will pave the way for accelerated delivery of food, water and other necessities to typhoon [Yolanda] survivors,” Coloma said.
