Ulysses destroyed nearly all fishing boats in Aurora town – mayor
Almost 100 percent of fishing boats in the coastal town of Dingalan in Aurora province were destroyed during the onslaught of Typhoon “Ulysses,” its mayor lamented on Thursday.
Dingalan Mayor Shierwin Taay called on his constituents to help out the fisher folk in Dingalan, especially those whose boats were destroyed, leaving them with virtually nothing to earn a living.
“Halos nasa 100% ng mga bangka ay nawasak at nasira ni Bagyong Ulysses. Tulungan po natin ang ating mga mangingisda,” he said.
“Mga bahayang tinangay ng malalakas na alon sa dalampasigan.Unang karanasan sa aking buhay ang halos ga- bundok na alon sa ating bayabayin.Hindi pinaligtas maging ang aming tahanan,sea wall, feeder port at ang ating CFLC,” Taay said.
“Mga Minamahal na kababayang Dingaleńo manatili sa mga evacuation centers at huwag lumabas sa mga bahayan manatili sa ligtas na lugar,” he added.
His Facebook post was shared by Aurora Governor Gerardo Noveras.
Dingalan is a third-class municipality with more than 25,000 residents.
