Powerful tornado damages banana plantations in Cotabato town
M'LANG, North Cotabato – A powerful tornado hit two villages here Thursday afternoon, causing heavy damage to banana plantations, an municipal agriculture official confirmed.
Nogie Saligumba, the town’s agriculture technologist, said at least 20 hectares of fruit-bearing banana plants were damaged in Pag-asa and Gaunan villages.
He said from 8,000 to 12,000 banana plants were damaged by the tornado which lasted for at least three minutes.
The damage to the plantations was pegged at P3.5 million. “Each tree with fruits ready to be harvested cost from P350 to P380,” Saligumba explained.

Mlang town gov’t pushes anti-smoking campaign
MLANG, North Cotabato(The Mindanao Cross)—Mayor Joselito Pinol of this town led health personnel Thursday morning in ridding the town’s public market of cigarette ads including signages bearing the name of the stores.
The mayor’s move was meant to convince constituents, especially minors to stop smoking. It was also meant to discourage the sale of cigarettes in public places like the town public market, terminals and near the school premises.
Pinol was also alarmed by reports reaching to him that many teenagers and minors are now engaged in smoking.
The mayor also asks the village officials to also launch a massive campaign against smoking and conduct an education and information on bad effects of cigarette smoking to human health.
“Let us make Davao City as a model. With massive campaign against smoking, Davao was awarded a red orchid by the Department of Health,” Pinol said.Add a comment
