Tangalan Bridge Already Passable

The bridge at Tangalan, Aklan has been declared passable since yesterday around 6:30 in the evening.

This was after a big hole in the ground where the bridge was located was seen by residents and commuters yesterday morning. Reportedly the soil in the ground gave way due to heavy rains and flooding in the previous days brought about by typhoon Gener.

The hole rendered the bridge impassable for vehicles. The bridge connects Kalibo and Caticlan.

According to PO2 Mario Sestorias of Tangalan Philippine National Police, the combined force of the Department of Public Works and Highways, National Disaster Risk Management Team, Local Government Unit and Tangalan Police refilled and packed in the hole enabling vehicles and commuters to finally cross.
