23 families in Sison evacuated

TYPHOON Ulysses forced the evacuation of 23 families from Barangay Bulaoen in Sison town to the Bulaoen West Elementary School.

Mayor Danilo Uy said the evacuation was a pre-emptive effort because Barangay Bulaoen is situated beside the Bued River.

The Bued River, which stretches to a total length of 77.3 kilometers, is one of Pangasinan’s main rivers. It begins in Benguet, then traverses downhill.

The town’s Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office immediately provided food and supplies for the evacuees. (Ahikam Pasion)

Power outage hits 7 towns, San Carlos City

SEVEN towns and one city being serviced by the Central Pangasinan Electric Cooperative (CENPELCO) suffered power outage when Typhoon Ulysses raged across Pangasinan last Thursday.

Engr. Rodrigo Corpuz, CENPELCO general manager, said the power outage started Thursday midnight and was caused by the failure of the Labrador-Malasiqui 69kV line of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

Areas affected were Bugallon, Lingayen, Binmaley, Malasiqui, Urbiztondo, Mangatarem, Aguilar, and San Carlos City.

Meanwhile, NGCP Communications head Ernest Vidal said the lines were de-energized.

Aside from the Lingayen-Malasiqui line, Vidal also said the Labrador-Bolinao 69kV line also tripped. This line feeds power supply to PANELCO I.

Meanwhile, the NGCP was able to restore power to said lines after 16 grueling hours. (Ahikam Pasion)
