AFP personnel and volunteers responsible for packing the boxes orchestrated their activities via a board that monitored timelines

(CNN Philippines) The wrath of Super Typhoon Lawin has placed Ilocos Norte, Tuguegarao City in Cagayan, and Apayao under a state of calamity on Friday.

Ilocos Norte Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Corazon Lilian Rin estimated the cost of damage of Lawin at ₱759 million.

The province is getting back on its feet, but power is still out, communication remains unstable, and a number of structures were heavily damaged. 10,927 people were affected by Lawin in Ilocos Norte.

Tuguegarao Mayor Jefferson Soriano said around 6,000 houses in the city were totally damaged while around 16,000 were partially damaged by Lawin.

Mga mahal naming kababayan, kaunting paliwanag po: hindi tayo humihingi ng foreign assistance o donations mula sa ibang bansa para sa Karen o Lawin dahil nakitang may sapat na pondo ang gobyerno at mga ahensya nito para saklolohan ang mamamayang apektado.

Dahil walang katiwalian at transparent ang ating ipinatutupad na proseso, kitang-kita na may pondong sapat na magagamit para sa kagyat na pangangailangan. Nagtutulungan ang mga LGU, members ng private sector, ang taumbayan at ang pambansang gobyerno sa pamumuno ni Pres. Duterte para maibigay ang saklolong tulong para sa ating mga kapatid na nasalanta. Pagsisikapan natin na paghusayin at linisin ang sistema ng relief and assistance dustribution NANG WALANG HALONG PULITIKA. Hindi madali ang pagbabago --mahirap at matagal din ito, pero kung di natin sisimulan ngayon, kailan pa?

Hindi tayo dapat maging pala-asa at pala-hingi sa mga dayuhang gobyerno kung kaya nating tumindig sa sariling paa. Kung sama-sama, lahat makakaya. #KayaNgPilipinas
