DAGUPAN CITY – The City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) has warned beach goers at Tondaligan Beach to refrain from swimming while it is raining to avoid getting jelly fish sting especially during the coming weekend till the first week of September.
The warning was made by PDRRMO chief Ronaldo De Guzman as he disclosed that jelly fish swarm the shorelines during rainy days, noting that several beach goers were already victims of jelly fish sting.
“This is the time when jelly fish abound in the coastal water. It is better that our beach goers forego swimming while it is still raining in the meanwhile for them to avoid getting stung by the jelly fish,” said De Guzman.
In the CDRRMO report there were six cases of jelly fish sting registered on August 19, another 10 on August 20 and 34 on August 21.
He, however, said the number did not reach 100, adding .” we have recorded only 50 cases of jelly fish sting contrary to what had been reported”.
He also advised swimmers not to get near or go beyond the floating buoy at Tondaligan beach, follow the advice and instructions of the lifeguards and policemen and avoid drinking liquor so they would not get drowned. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/Aug. 23, 2017)
