ALABEL, Sarangani (October 24, 2019) – Residents of the coastal barangay of Ladol participate in the tsunami evacuation drill conducted by the Office of Civil Defense XII, Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) Gensan, and Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office on October 17. During the drill, some 700 residents from Puroks 1-7 who live along the coast were evacuated to Purok 8 which according to Nanie Danlag, OIC PHIVOLCS Gensan, is an ideal evacuation site knowing its distance from the coastal area.
