PNoy to monitor 'Vinta', Undas inside Palace
MANILA - President Aquino will just stay in Malacanan today and tomorrow, Saturday, and will monitor the continued exit of typhoon 'Vinta' from the country, and security concerns involving the commemoration of All Souls and All Saints Days.
Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said the Mr. Aquino has no public engagement scheduled, so far, up to tomorrow.
"The President is monitoring the situation kasi may mga reports din po sa Pangulo -- dalawa po ‘yung concern ng Pangulo ngayon. Patuloy ho ‘yung paglabas pa rin ng ating mga kababayan papunta ho doon sa mga kanilang mga probinsiya, at mino-monitor po natin ng maigi ‘yung mga exit points from the metro.
"At pangalawa, ‘yung mga lugar nga po na naapektuhan nung Typhoon 'Vinta.' So the President continues to receive reports on any areas that may need technical assistance and resource assistance from the national government. So far, naha-handle pa naman po nung local," Valte said.
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) has reported to Malacanan that 'Vinta' has left no casualty, so far, as of 6am today, but has caused the evacuation of 113 familes or 382 individuals in two municipalities in Region 2.
Meantime, the President is satisfied with security preparations put in place for All Souls and All Saints, Valte said.
Mr. Aquino has already visited the graves of his parents, President Cory and Senator Ninoy Aquino.
