Anticipating another possible typhoon, Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc encouraged his kailian to be alert as Tropical Storm (TS) 'Jenny' has officially entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) yesterday, placing Ilocos Norte under Signal No. 1.

"As we recover from Severe Tropical Storm (STS) 'Ineng,' here's another one — TS 'Jenny.' I just want to remind everyone to stay alert and vigilant. Let's prioritize the vulnerable groups: children, senior citizens, pregnant women, and persons with disability (PWDs)," Gov. Marcos- Manotoc stated.

In his press briefing this afternoon, Gov. Marcos-Manotoc also expressed, "We want to make sure that you take care of yourselves; do not risk your lives. Sana po huwag nang maulit ang nangyari sa bagyong 'Ineng,' at sana'y magtulungan po tayong muli para sa isa na namang bagyo."

"I urge everyone to take precautions with the possible effect of Typhoon 'Jenny': bolt down and tie doors, roofs, and windows, particularly to the Capitol building, and other Provincial Government owned properties, to avoid possible damages" he ended.

Meanwhile, Gov. Marcos-Manotoc has given relief assistance to the family of one of the victims who died during the onslaught of STS 'Ineng' in Salet, Laoag City.

"I have talked to his wife, who requested for educational assistance for her Grade 8 daughter. I even told her that we will eventually find her a job. We assured them that the Provincial Government, along with the City Government of Laoag, will continue to provide assistance to them," Gov. Marcos-Manotoc emphasized.

Gov. Marcos-Manotoc also gave financial and relief assistance the family of a Grade 11 student from Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte who recently died due to a landslide.
