Army camp in CL still in darkness
Col. Ernesto Torres, chief operations officer of the 7th Infantry Division, said military offices and homes of officers and men inside the camp were in darkness but camp operations remained unhampered.
“We have to rely on fire trucks to provide us water. The water system in the camp was dependent on electricity,” Torres said.
Typhoon Santi, which caused widespread damaged in Central Luzon and nearby areas, knocked down power pylons and uprooted trees. It brought heavy rains and floods that submerged highways, rice fields and communities.
Torrest said the estimate of damages to inside the camp was not immediately known but he expected a P3 million subsidy from the army central headquarters for the cost of power restoration.
