In Silay City, 1,992 housing units in Barangay E. Lopez are being readied for turnover, including the multi-purpose covered court with training center, and open spaces for community facilities, the press release said.

There are 1,168 housing units for turnover in Barangay Sto. Niño, in E.B. Magalona town. Aside from open spaces for community facilities, a covered court with training center will also be constructed in the resettlement site.

The Yolanda resettlement site in Victorias City has 2,321 housing units, and the NHA orientation will be held today.

NHA Bacolod area manager Alejandro Ongsuco said there are 27,055 Yolanda permanent housing units in Negros Occidental which are all constructed in Northern Negros, of which 5,481 units are in the three LGUs of the 3rd District.
