The operations center of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council ( NDRRMC) raised the red alert on Wednesday afternoon, December 15, in anticipation of the effects of typhoon “Odette”.

In the red alert state, all regional DRRM offices nationwide were virtual with the operations center at the headquarters of the NDRRMC in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, connected to ensure easy coordination and delivery of the highest level of responsiveness to their constituents, he explained NDRRMC managing director Ricardo Jalad.

« Odette was classified as a typhoon 12 hours before the expected impact on the mainland. The Pagasa [Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration] said it wouldn’t turn into a super typhoon, but it will be a major typhoon, « said Jalad.

Odette is expected to be over the Thursday afternoon or evening eastern Visayas or Caraga.

Seven regions have been classified as « High Risk Areas » due to the potential impact of Odette. They are required to activate the « Charlie » protocol or immediate action and reactions.

These are Mimaropa (Region 4B), Western Visayas (Region 6), Central Visayas (Region 7), Eastern Visayas (Region 8) ), Northern Mindanao (Region 10), Soccsksargen (Region 12) and Caraga (Region 13).

Meanwhile, Ilocos (Region 1), Cagayan Valley (Region 2), Calabarzon (Region 4A), Bicol (Region 5 ), Zamboanga Peninsula (Region 9.) Identified as “medium risk” and required to implement the “Bravo” protocol or a high priority response), Davao (Region 11) and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

For the National Capital Region (NCR), the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and Central Luzon (Region 3), only the “Alpha Protocol” or the initial and preparatory response is required as they are classified as “Areas with low Risk ”.

“ This storm is pretty big if we look at the satellite view n. The size of the storm is big enough to cover the entire central Philippines, the Visayan provinces and a good stretch of land in Mindanao and Mimaropa once it crosses land, « said NDRRMC spokesman Mark Timbal.

Meanwhile, said the head of the NDRRMC operations center, Joe-mar Perez, for activating the council emergency clusters run by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

These clusters are responsible for coordinating the situation on the ground ; protect vulnerable people; Prepare food and other supplies; Provide logistics; Conducting search, rescue and recovery operations (SRR); Ensuring the health and safety of data subjects; Ensuring the availability of emergency telecommunications; and education.

So far, the NDRRMC operations center has to consolidate the reports on the ground about how many people were preventively evacuated prior to the expected landfall of Odette.

However, according to initial reports, 39 families or 72 people were in four barangays in Roxas City, Capiz, preventively evacuated. They are residents of Barangay Baybay, Dumulog, Barra and Cogon.

There were also several families who were evacuated in Regions 6, 7, 8 and Caraga, but details are yet to be released by the NDRRMC.

Total standby resources worth P331 million have been prepared by the emergency clusters and are available for use in areas where they are needed, Perez said.

There were also 3,175 SRR teams, 558 estates , 281 sea cargo and eight aircraft prepared for emergency use by the NDRRMC.
