Warning signs on roads pushed

To ensure public safety, the Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod joined hands with the Department of Public Works and Highways to install highly visible reflectorized warning signs on public highways and roads in Bacolod City [3]. The resolution is authored by Councilor Wilson Gamboa Jr. after it was observed that road surfaces are uneven along Araneta Street starting from Brgy. Tangub to the boundaries of Brgy. Sum-ag.

Other areas seen to have an uneven road surface are Lacson Street, Burgos Street, the road to Brgy. Granada, and the road that separates the bike lanes from Alijis Road. The road signs are highly recommended for motorists, especially those in two-wheeled vehicles like motorcycles and bicycles, to avoid road accidents.

Phivolcs assures Mt. Kanlaon is in a normal state

Since the eruption of Taal Volcano last January 12, misleading reports about the activity of Mt. Kanlaon have also circulated on social media. However, Mt. Kanlaon is in a normal status according to Phivolcs-Kanlaon Observation Station in La Carlota City [4]. In fact, Phivolcs-Department of Science and Technology (DOST) stated that the volcano’s alert status has been downgraded from Alert Level 1 (abnormal) to Alert Level 0 (normal) since October 25, 2019.

Phivolcs-DOST added that Kanlaon has exhibited a general decline of monitoring parameters to normal/baseline values since June 2019. They are also monitoring the volcano using parameters like volcanic earthquake activity, ground deformation, gas emission, and visual observation of the summit. If there’s a new development in Kanlaon’s condition, Phivolcs-DOST will immediately communicate it to everyone concerned.
