Some Bulusan evacuees return home


LEGAZPI CITY: Villagers who live around Mount Bulusan who were evacuated earlier because of the threat posed by Typhoon Dodong have returned to their homes after the weather disturbance veered away from the Bicol Region. Engineer Raden Dimaano, Sorsogon Provncial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office chief, said 300 persons were earlier evacuated by the local government unit because of the possible associated hazards Dodong could bring. He, however, clarified that those residing within the four-kilometer permanent danger zone (PDZ) of the volcano have not been allowed to return home and are still staying with their relatives outside the zone. Those affected are residents of Barangay Cogon and Barangay Mapaso in Irosin town.
