MetadataShow full item record
An official monitoring the progress of operations to clean up the oil spill that aggravated the effects of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” on a town in northern Iloilo province is asking the firm handling the cleanup to work faster as the operation is just half completed almost three months after the spill hit the town. Rex Sabada, a consultant of the provincial government and manager of the University of the Philippines Visayas Oil Spill Program, said the cleanup operation in Estancia town, Iloilo, had to move at a quicker pace.
