TACLOBAN CITY- After more than four months after Leyte was pummeled by supertyphoon Yolanda, its towns located in the fourth district appeared to be in the road of recovery.
This was the assessment made by Board Member Mesias Arevalo who represents Leyte ’s fourth district at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.
According to him, the fast recovery of the towns in the district, particularly Palompon and Merida , was due to the assistance that they received not only from the provincial and national governments but from various international organizations.
The Leyte board member said that the people of the district are now back to their normal lives and routines as local businessmen have now return to business.
He added that fishermen and farmers have now returned to planting and fishing. Arevalo said that planting and fishing materials were provided by to them reason why they are working.
“The farmers and the fishermen, after the devastation of the supertyphoon, have been given priority when it comes to their needs in order for them to go back immediately to planting and fishing,” Arevalo said.
He also said that the tourism industry, particularly in Palompon, is also slowly recovering as tourists have return to visit the town’s most famous tourist spot, the Kalanggaman Island. (RYAN GABRIEL LLOSA ARCENAS)
