Dumaguete cops visit
2 ‘drug hot spot' brgys

Two barangays in Dumaguete City, that are considered hot spots, in the proliferation of illegal drugs, were visited recently by personnel of the Dumaguete City Police as part of Operation Double Barrel Reloaded.

Headed by the chief of police, Supt. Jovito Atanacio, police personnel and barangay officials revisited surrenderers under Oplan Tokhang of barangays Looc and Cadawinonan.

Atanacio said the re-visitation is aimed at making sure the personalities are accounted for, aside from verifying their present status, after a lull of almost two months in the anti-drug operation.

Bayawan to hold
quake drill March 24

Barangays, schools, and private establishments in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, are urged to take part in the citywide earthquake drill, dubbed “The Big One”, 3 p.m. on March 24.

The city government, through the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, will hold the drill to assess disaster response and preparedness, a government press release said.

Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management officer II Siegfred Kent Uy said scenarios, such as road accidents, river crossing, fires and tsunami incidents, will be simulated in different areas of the city to give information and prepare the people if these incidents will happen.

Duterte can't stop
China's plan in shoal

President Rodrigo Duterte said yesterday he could not stop China from building on a disputed shoal near his country's west coast because it was too powerful.

The mayor of China's Sansha city has reportedly said his country would set up an environmental monitoring station on Scarborough Shoal, which China seized from the Philippines in 2012.

“We cannot stop China from doing (these) things," Duterte told journalists when asked about the reports.
