THE Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) has identified 12 barangays in the cities of Cebu, Talisay and Mandaue that have been “severely affected” by water supply shortages amid a continued drop in daily production.These are barangays Umapad, Opao, Alang-alang, Looc and Subangdaku in Mandaue City; Lorega San Miguel, Binaliw, San Jose, Talamban and Pit-os in Cebu City; and Cansojong and San Roque in Talisay City.However, residents in other barangays not included in the list are also struggling with their water supply, with one consumer reporting inconsistent service since January.This is occurring as Cebu grapples with the ill effects of the drought caused by the El Niño phenomenon, with its effects expected to persist until the end of May.MCWD spokesperson Minerva Gerodias told SunStar Cebu on Thursday, April 11, 2024, that they continue to face a struggle in providing water supply as its production has plummeted, with a reduction of 46,748 cubic meters of water each day.The local water utility’s daily output now stands at just 254,252 cubic meters as of Wednesday, April 10, which translates to a 15.53 percent decrease from the utility’s maximum production capacity.She said the maximum water production capacity under normal circumstances is 301,000 cubic meters per day.MCWD serves the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Talisay and Lapu-Lapu, and the towns of Consolacion, Liloan, Compostela and Cordova.Last March 5, Tommy Gonzalez of the production department of MCWD reported that they were already losing 25,000 cubic meters from their daily water production, at the time when Cebu was still placed under a dry spell.Currently, Gerodias reported the halving of production at the Jaclupan wellfield in Talisay City to 14,193 cubic meters per day, from the usual 30,000 cubic meters, and at the Buhisan Dam to 3,143 cubic meters per day from 6,000 cubic meters.Lusaran Hydro’s water production in Cebu City has also been cut in half to 15,000 from 30,000 cubic meters daily. Only the water supply from the Luyang River in Carmen town has not been affected.Affected residentsThe ongoing drought has severely hampered the utility’s ability to meet the increasing water demand of the community.Gerodias said with the current deficit in their daily water production, approximately 46,000 households will experience low supply to intermittent water supply.Not in the listMariecon Guinto, a graduating radiologic technology student from Southwestern University Phinma, said that since January, they have been experiencing intermittent water supply in their residence in Sitio Zapatera in Barangay Luz, Cebu City.Guinto, 24, said their water supply has regularly become low, and they experience no water supply for at least two days a week, with interruptions lasting for three to four hours each day.She added that because of the unreliable water connection, they have learned to ensure that there is enough water in stock for their family of seven households.Jessa Faith Pepito, 25, a junior architect from Barangay Duljo-Fatima, Cebu City said that earlier this week, they started to experience a 14-hour water service interruption every day, affecting their family of 10 household members.She said the water supply comes back only every 8 p.m. until 6:30 a.m., so people are now losing sleep just to fetch water for the next day.Barangays Luz and Duljo Fatima are not in the list of barangays MCWD defined as severely affected.InterventionGerodias said to augment the water supply in severely affected barangays, they follow a schedule in deploying water trucks to supply these areas.In Mandaue City, water trucks visit Barangay Umapad on Mondays and Thursdays; Barangay Opao, Tuesdays and Fridays; Barangay Alang-alang, Wednesdays and Saturdays; and Barangay Looc, Sundays.Barangay Subangdaku receives deliveries on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays; the trucks also serve Mandaue Public Market in Barangay Centro on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.In Cebu City, the trucks are deployed to Barangay Lorega San Miguel Tuesday through Saturday; Barangay Binaliw on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays; and barangays San Jose and Talamban on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.Water trucks go to Barangay Pit-os on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.In Talisay City, Barangay San Roque receives deliveries on Tuesdays and Saturdays, while Barangay Cansojong is served on Wednesdays and Fridays.Desalinated seawaterGerodias also addressed the expected initial delivery of 30,000 cubic meters of desalinated water that is supposed to come this month.Desalinated water is seawater that has undergone a process to remove salts and minerals, making it suitable for drinking and other purposes.Gerodias said there has been a delay as they are still coordinating with their contracted water suppliers from Barangay Opao in Mandaue City and Barangay Mambaling in Cebu City for the deliveries.“We are still hoping that they can deliver within the month. They are making adjustments in their plants, but the pipe laying is already complete. We are eagerly awaiting the operation of their plants,” she said.Additionally, she urged the public to practice water conservation as they face the issue of water supply shortages amid the drought.Earlier, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) Visayas announced that Cebu is currently experiencing a drought, which will persist until the end of May.Drought is classified as an extended dry condition, characterized by either five consecutive months of below-normal rainfall or three months of significantly below-normal rainfall.Jhomer Eclarino of Pagasa Visayas previously defined below-normal rainfall as 20 to 60 percent less than the usual amount, while way-below-normal rainfall indicates a decrease of more than 60 percent from the norm.He also said last month that on average, Cebu receives 60.9 millimeters of rainfall in March. However, this year, it has recorded only 9.8 millimeters, representing an 84 percent reduction. Who regulates casinos in the Philippines?

Marcos Jr. has signed an order prohibiting government officials and personnel from using sirens, blinkers, and other similar flashing devices on their vehicles. Signed on March 25, 2024, by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin on behalf of the President, Administrative Order (AO) 18 aims to create a safer and more organized traffic environment. A copy of the order is posted on the Presidential Communications Office's Facebook page on Thursday, April 11. The President's order comes after reports of widespread misuse of sirens and flashing lights by unauthorized government vehicles, causing traffic disruptions.It cites Presidential Decree 96, issued by Marcos' father and namesake in 1973. The martial law-era decree limits the "use or attachment of any siren, bell, hon, whistle or similar gadgets that produce exceptionally loud or startling sound, including dome lights, blinkers, and other similar signaling or flashing devices to any motor vehicle" to official use by the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investigation, and fire trucks and hospital ambulances.ProhibitionSection 1 of AO 18 states that "all government officials and personnel are hereby prohibited from utilizing sirens, blinkers, and other similar gadgets that produce exceptionally loud or startling sound, including dome lights, blinkers, or other similar signaling or flashing devices.""Unauthorized and improper use of signaling or flashing devices by government officials and employees shall be dealt with in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations," it added. The ban applies to all government officials and personnel; however, the use of sirens and flashing lights of authorized vehicles is limited to emergencies.The President tasked the Department of Transportation with reviewing existing policies to ensure the effective implementation of the order. The directive takes effect immediately upon publication.Noynoy's 'no wang-wang' policyA similar policy was implemented during the administration of former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III from 2010 to 2016. Aquino III issued a no wang-wang policy, strengthening the implementation of PD 96.Despite being allowed to use sirens and blinkers on his convoy, Aquino did not use them. He also forbade his aides and the Presidential Security Group from using sirens and blinkers whenever they would be on the move. He ordered the same for his cabinet and the rest of his staff.It remains to be seen if President Marcos' convoy will use sirens and blinkers. His delegation left the country at 2:56 p.m. on Wednesday to take part in the first-ever trilateral meeting between the Philippines, the US, and Japan. He is set to arrive in Washington, DC, around 8 p.m. on Thursday (US time).Chavit Singson's convoyLast Monday, April 8, national media reported that a convoy of former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson received two violation tickets after traffic enforcers from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority caught his convoy passing through the Edsa bus lane.The politician-turned-businessman was in the backseat of his bulletproof vehicle when his convoy was flagged down.Singson's convoy, however, was reportedly not cited for using blinkers.He issued an apology after the incident, saying he was in a rush for a television interview.

AFTER the death of a four-year-old boy who fell from a unit on the 27th floor of a condominium in Barangay Lahug, Cebu City, the Office of the Building Official (OBO) has temporarily closed the unit pending submission of incident report and completion of building design inspection.OBO head Florante Catalan led the ocular inspection of the unit of the Median Condominium on Thursday, April 11, three days after the fatal incident happened on Monday, April 8.On Tuesday, April 9, City Councilor Rey Gealon issued a resolution requesting OBO to investigate the incident to determine if an occupancy permit was issued for the unit and check any design flaws that may have contributed to the child’s fall.The investigation also aims to prevent similar incidents and ensure the safety of all condominium residents.Catalan told reporters on Thursday that the temporary closure will only apply to the unit from which the child fell.

THE Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) has identified 12 barangays in the cities of Cebu, Talisay and Mandaue that have been “severely affected” by water supply shortages amid a continued drop in daily production.These are barangays Umapad, Opao, Alang-alang, Looc and Subangdaku in Mandaue City; Lorega San Miguel, Binaliw, San Jose, Talamban and Pit-os in Cebu City; and Cansojong and San Roque in Talisay City.However, residents in other barangays not included in the list are also struggling with their water supply, with one consumer reporting inconsistent service since January.This is occurring as Cebu grapples with the ill effects of the drought caused by the El Niño phenomenon, with its effects expected to persist until the end of May.MCWD spokesperson Minerva Gerodias told SunStar Cebu on Thursday, April 11, 2024, that they continue to face a struggle in providing water supply as its production has plummeted, with a reduction of 46,748 cubic meters of water each day.The local water utility’s daily output now stands at just 254,252 cubic meters as of Wednesday, April 10, which translates to a 15.53 percent decrease from the utility’s maximum production capacity.She said the maximum water production capacity under normal circumstances is 301,000 cubic meters per day.MCWD serves the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Talisay and Lapu-Lapu, and the towns of Consolacion, Liloan, Compostela and Cordova.Last March 5, Tommy Gonzalez of the production department of MCWD reported that they were already losing 25,000 cubic meters from their daily water production, at the time when Cebu was still placed under a dry spell.Currently, Gerodias reported the halving of production at the Jaclupan wellfield in Talisay City to 14,193 cubic meters per day, from the usual 30,000 cubic meters, and at the Buhisan Dam to 3,143 cubic meters per day from 6,000 cubic meters.Lusaran Hydro’s water production in Cebu City has also been cut in half to 15,000 from 30,000 cubic meters daily. Only the water supply from the Luyang River in Carmen town has not been affected.Affected residentsThe ongoing drought has severely hampered the utility’s ability to meet the increasing water demand of the community.Gerodias said with the current deficit in their daily water production, approximately 46,000 households will experience low supply to intermittent water supply.Not in the listMariecon Guinto, a graduating radiologic technology student from Southwestern University Phinma, said that since January, they have been experiencing intermittent water supply in their residence in Sitio Zapatera in Barangay Luz, Cebu City.Guinto, 24, said their water supply has regularly become low, and they experience no water supply for at least two days a week, with interruptions lasting for three to four hours each day.She added that because of the unreliable water connection, they have learned to ensure that there is enough water in stock for their family of seven households.Jessa Faith Pepito, 25, a junior architect from Barangay Duljo-Fatima, Cebu City said that earlier this week, they started to experience a 14-hour water service interruption every day, affecting their family of 10 household members.She said the water supply comes back only every 8 p.m. until 6:30 a.m., so people are now losing sleep just to fetch water for the next day.Barangays Luz and Duljo Fatima are not in the list of barangays MCWD defined as severely affected.InterventionGerodias said to augment the water supply in severely affected barangays, they follow a schedule in deploying water trucks to supply these areas.In Mandaue City, water trucks visit Barangay Umapad on Mondays and Thursdays; Barangay Opao, Tuesdays and Fridays; Barangay Alang-alang, Wednesdays and Saturdays; and Barangay Looc, Sundays.Barangay Subangdaku receives deliveries on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays; the trucks also serve Mandaue Public Market in Barangay Centro on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.In Cebu City, the trucks are deployed to Barangay Lorega San Miguel Tuesday through Saturday; Barangay Binaliw on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays; and barangays San Jose and Talamban on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.Water trucks go to Barangay Pit-os on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.In Talisay City, Barangay San Roque receives deliveries on Tuesdays and Saturdays, while Barangay Cansojong is served on Wednesdays and Fridays.Desalinated seawaterGerodias also addressed the expected initial delivery of 30,000 cubic meters of desalinated water that is supposed to come this month.Desalinated water is seawater that has undergone a process to remove salts and minerals, making it suitable for drinking and other purposes.Gerodias said there has been a delay as they are still coordinating with their contracted water suppliers from Barangay Opao in Mandaue City and Barangay Mambaling in Cebu City for the deliveries.“We are still hoping that they can deliver within the month. They are making adjustments in their plants, but the pipe laying is already complete. We are eagerly awaiting the operation of their plants,” she said.Additionally, she urged the public to practice water conservation as they face the issue of water supply shortages amid the drought.Earlier, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) Visayas announced that Cebu is currently experiencing a drought, which will persist until the end of May.Drought is classified as an extended dry condition, characterized by either five consecutive months of below-normal rainfall or three months of significantly below-normal rainfall.Jhomer Eclarino of Pagasa Visayas previously defined below-normal rainfall as 20 to 60 percent less than the usual amount, while way-below-normal rainfall indicates a decrease of more than 60 percent from the norm.He also said last month that on average, Cebu receives 60.9 millimeters of rainfall in March. However, this year, it has recorded only 9.8 millimeters, representing an 84 percent reduction. Why Filipinos gamble? .

AFTER the death of a four-year-old boy who fell from a unit on the 27th floor of a condominium in Barangay Lahug, Cebu City, the Office of the Building Official (OBO) has temporarily closed the unit pending submission of incident report and completion of building design inspection.OBO head Florante Catalan led the ocular inspection of the unit of the Median Condominium on Thursday, April 11, three days after the fatal incident happened on Monday, April 8.On Tuesday, April 9, City Councilor Rey Gealon issued a resolution requesting OBO to investigate the incident to determine if an occupancy permit was issued for the unit and check any design flaws that may have contributed to the child’s fall.The investigation also aims to prevent similar incidents and ensure the safety of all condominium residents.Catalan told reporters on Thursday that the temporary closure will only apply to the unit from which the child fell. Other units in the condo will not be affected.Catalan added that the management has not yet submitted its report on the incident, which is required before his office will decide to reopen the condo unit.However, he said he would allow the management sufficient time to prepare the report.Design inspectionCatalan said the condominium has two designs: the first design has a terrace and the other features only awning-type windows.According to initial reports, the boy fell from the unit without a terrace. He was rushed to the hospital; however, doctors pronounced him dead upon arrival.Catalan said they mandated the condominium management to inspect its building’s architectural design, particularly its windows.He noted that the awning windows are equipped only with limiters that restrict the opening.When asked if the management will be compelled to alter the condominium’s window designs, Catalan said it would depend on the assessment of the management’s architectural team.“Dili ta makahilabot man gud sa designers kon unsa,” he said. (We cannot interfere with what the designers decide.)UndeclaredCatalan said the boy’s family was only renting the unit. The family allegedly had not informed the unit’s owner that they had children with them.He said the boy’s family had already vacated the unit. When asked who would be accountable for the incident, Catalan said he was not sure yet.“Dili lang pod nato i-blame tanan. Kita nga mga ginikanan usa pod sa (atong katungdanan) nga bantayan nato atong anak,” he said.(We should not solely blame anyone; as parents, it is also our responsibility to watch over our children.)An investigation by the police revealed that the boy’s body hit a canopy on the third floor before falling to the floor near the swimming pool.Before the incident, the boy’s mother went to the kitchen to prepare coffee, leaving her two children, including the four-year-old in the room. She believed her children were asleep. / AML licensed online casinos PRESIDENT Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has signed an order prohibiting government officials and personnel from using sirens, blinkers, and other similar flashing devices on their vehicles. Signed on March 25, 2024, by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin on behalf of the President, Administrative Order (AO) 18 aims to create a safer and more organized traffic environment. A copy of the order is posted on the Presidential Communications Office's Facebook page on Thursday, April 11. The President's order comes after reports of widespread misuse of sirens and flashing lights by unauthorized government vehicles, causing traffic disruptions.It cites Presidential Decree 96, issued by Marcos' father and namesake in 1973. The martial law-era decree limits the "use or attachment of any siren, bell, hon, whistle or similar gadgets that produce exceptionally loud or startling sound, including dome lights, blinkers, and other similar signaling or flashing devices to any motor vehicle" to official use by the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investigation, and fire trucks and hospital ambulances.ProhibitionSection 1 of AO 18 states that "all government officials and personnel are hereby prohibited from utilizing sirens, blinkers, and other similar gadgets that produce exceptionally loud or startling sound, including dome lights, blinkers, or other similar signaling or flashing devices.""Unauthorized and improper use of signaling or flashing devices by government officials and employees shall be dealt with in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations," it added. The ban applies to all government officials and personnel; however, the use of sirens and flashing lights of authorized vehicles is limited to emergencies.The President tasked the Department of Transportation with reviewing existing policies to ensure the effective implementation of the order. The directive takes effect immediately upon publication.Noynoy's 'no wang-wang' policyA similar policy was implemented during the administration of former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III from 2010 to 2016. Aquino III issued a no wang-wang policy, strengthening the implementation of PD 96.Despite being allowed to use sirens and blinkers on his convoy, Aquino did not use them. He also forbade his aides and the Presidential Security Group from using sirens and blinkers whenever they would be on the move. He ordered the same for his cabinet and the rest of his staff.It remains to be seen if President Marcos' convoy will use sirens and blinkers. His delegation left the country at 2:56 p.m. on Wednesday to take part in the first-ever trilateral meeting between the Philippines, the US, and Japan. He is set to arrive in Washington, DC, around 8 p.m. on Thursday (US time).Chavit Singson's convoyLast Monday, April 8, national media reported that a convoy of former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson received two violation tickets after traffic enforcers from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority caught his convoy passing through the Edsa bus lane.The politician-turned-businessman was in the backseat of his bulletproof vehicle when his convoy was flagged down.Singson's convoy, however, was reportedly not cited for using blinkers.He issued an apology after the incident, saying he was in a rush for a television interview.
