Malacañang assured victims of typhoon Quinta, which brought heavy rain and strong winds through southern Luzon and forced nearly 9,000 to flee their homes, that help is coming to their areas.

About P890 million in food packs and standby funds have been prepared by the social and welfare department, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a media briefing.

“Doon sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo, huwag po kayong mag-alala, darating na po ang tulong ninyo,” Roque said. 

“At ang Presidente po, talagang number one concern niya ay iyong safety at well-being ng mga nasalanta ng bagyo. Hang in there po at nandiyan na po ang tulong, parating na,” he added. 

[Those who were hit by the storm, don’t worry, help will come. And the President’s number one concer in really the safety and well-being of those affected. Hang in there, help is coming.]

Quinta follows tropical storm Pepito (international name: Saudel), which last week caused widespread flooding in Quezon province in the Calabarzon region, southeast of the capital Manila.
