President Rodrigo Roa Duterte visited Bais City in Negros Oriental to conduct an aerial inspection on the coverage of destruction as well as to check on the people severely affected by Typhoon ‘Odette’ in their evacuation center.

The Chief Executive personally assessed the situation and uplifted the morale of Baisnons whose sources of income have been massively affected by flashfloods and landslides due to ‘Odette’ last December 17, 2021. He also led the ceremonial distribution of relief goods to a number of evacuees.

Negros Oriental is one of the provinces currently under a ‘State of Calamity’ following President Duterte’s declaration through Proclamation No. 1267, series 2021.
