Atty. Raul Lambino wrote me on Facebook with this appeal:
We are now experiencing the worst disaster in Pangasinan, after the 1990 killer earthquake, due to typhoon Pepeng that continue to batter Northern Luzon for a week now. More than 80% of Pangasinan is now inundated with flood waters and tens of thousands of ou provincemates are now in need of help.
The big rivers, like Agno River that traverses Eastern Pangasinan from San Manuel and Central Pangasinan to Lingayen and Bued form Sison to San Fabian, and their tributaries like Angalacan River that passes in Pozorrubio, Manaoag, San Jacinto and Mangaldan; Sinocalan River that passes through Asingan, Urdaneta, Sta Barbara, Calasiao, down the Pantal River in Dagupan City; Aloragat River from Sison, Binalonan, Pozorrubio, Laoac, Manaoag, San Jacinto, Mangaldan; AMburayan River and other tributaries have overflown.
We urge everyone to please extend assistance to Pangasinan and our provincemates.
