Declare state of calamity in quake-struck Eastern Visayas, gov’t urged

Two congressmen from Samar on Wednesday called on the national government to declare a state of calamity in the whole Eastern Visayas region, which was rocked by a 6.5 magnitude earthquake.
In a press briefing at the House of Representatives, Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone and Samar Rep. Edgar Sarmiento said there is a need for a declaration of a state of calamity in the whole Region VIII to fast-track the deployment of power barges and generators.
This because the region remains marred with a power outage since the quake struck on July 6, causing millions of economic losses, the congressmen said.
