BENITO SOLIVEN, Isabela, Oct. 23 – The local chief executive here is seeking the intervention of Isabela provincial officials for the rehabilitation of roads that were destroyed by recent typhoon "Pepeng" when it made three landfalls in Northern Luzon.

Mayor Benjamin Sanglay said the calamity fund of the municipality is not enough to finance the damages brought by Pepeng.

"I am asking for financial aid from the provincial government to rehabilitate the infrastructure damaged by typhoon Pepeng," Sanglay said over a local radio station here.

Portions of barangay, municipal and provincial roads linking the municipality that were underwater and eroded during the onslaught of the typhoon and are now dangerous to pass through.

Mayor Sanglay said he wants that all destroyed roads going to his town soon be rehabilitated and repaired to bring back normal situation in this inner eastern part of Isabela town.

The local chief executive said he is confident that the town's request to the provincial government will be given prompt action and preferential attention. (PNA)
