Guevarra said Barangays Sta. Cruz, Cambasi, Puti, Sta. Monica, San Agustin, Bebe Anak, Bebe Matua, Bulacus and Malauli near the dike are in imminent danger.

“We have forwarded this request to Gov. Eddie Panlilio but as of now no action has been taken,” Guevarra said.

He said that he has forwarded instead their plea to Board Member Joel Simpauco whom he said vowed to act on the repair of the control dike. (Jovi T. De Leon)
