Make telecom, power lines ‘Yolanda-proof’

BURY TELECOMS, POWER AND CABLE TV LINES UNDERGROUND, REP. HENRY ONG PROPOSES

[Start multi-year underground cabling in Eastern Visayas, other eastern parts of PHL]

Leyte 2nd District Rep. Henry C. Ong proposes to the Department of Energy and to the Department of Information and Communications Technology that all the country's electricity power, communication, and cable television lines be buried underground to avoid or minimize blackouts because of typhoons.

"The only place where our those cables will be protected versus typhoons and floods is underground. We must start doing this in 2019 and onwards as a climate change adaptation and disaster mitigation program, in response to the fact that much of our country is in the path of and is battered by storms all year," said Rep. Ong, Member of the House Committee on Energy and Committee on Information & Communications Technology.

The Leyte congressman said, "it is time we accept our fate as a typhoon-stricken country. Lagi na lang tayong binabayo ng bagyo, nagbabagsakan ng poste, at nalalagutan ng kable. Yung ibang pa bagyo ay sing-lakas pa ng bagong Yolanda. Ito ang mabisa at pangmatagalang solusyon."

Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) struck the Visayas on November 8, 2013.

"This will require massive investments and meticulous planning by both the power and telecoms sectors. It can be done gradually starting with Eastern Visayas, Bicol, northeastern Mindanao, and the eastern seaboard of Luzon because these are the areas  the typhoons hit land at full strength," said Ong.

Ong said underground cabling is already underway in Davao City. "Their experience there can serve as the model or prototype for the rest of the country." (END)
