What happens to the animals in Mayon's danger zone? Salceda explains

LEGAZPI CITY--The Provincial Government of Albay is considering buying the domestic animals of the residents near Mayon Volcano.

In a press briefing, Gov. Joey Salceda announced that this may help convince residents near the foot of the volcano to leave their homes and move to the evacuation centers, Radio Veritas Legazpi reported.

Salceda explained that some residents in the danger zone have been acting stubborn because they did not want to leave the animals behind.

However, in case the locals would not want to sell their animals, Salceda said that they will not be forced to do so. Rather, the locals will be directed to bring the animals at the designated evacuation center in Barangay Cabangan in Camalig town.

After the calamity, the animals will be given back to the evacuees, the governor said.

Meanwhile, in a related report, it was noted that the punong barangays of the villages in the danger zone will be in charge of finding a temporary shelter for the animals, according to the CDRRMC.

As of press time, some 20,000 individuals from the danger zone have been evacuated, according to the NDRRMC main office in Manila.--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
