Mayor Joseph Evangelista speaks with residents of Barangay Ginatilan, one of the hardest hit upland village in Kidapawan City

KIDAPAWAN CITY --- Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph Evangelista urged residents of mountainside villages in Barangay Ilomavis at the foot of Mt. Apo to relocate to safer areas for possible landslides that aftershocks can likely cause.

Evangelista, chairman of the Kidapawan City disaster risk reduction and management council, announced Tuesday that all residents in Sitios Sayaban and Agco in Barangay Ilomavis must all be out before dusk Wednesday.

He said they will compel uncooperative residents to sign a waiver exonerating the city government from any liability from accidents as a result of possible aftershocks.

Evangelista said the city government is ready to provide residents with transportation needed for their evacuation from Barangay Ilomavis.
