ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, is mounting a week-long special to remember the lessons learned from Ondoy, the devastating typhoon that submerged Metro Manila and other provinces on September 26, 2009.
This Monday, September 27, at 6:30 pm, ANC will be holding a live forum on disaster preparedness anchored by Tina Monzon Palma.
ANC will be taking part in training 36 men and women from 3 barangays on basic water rescue, first aid, and basic emergencies. This is through the assistance of local barangay officials and government agencies. The project is one of several on-ground activities lined up by ANC in its yearlong campaign to reach out to its viewers.
The week-long special of ANC kicks off on Sunday and Monday, with all its major newscasts running segments on Ondoy.
From Tuesday (September 28) to Thursday (September 30), ANC's talk shows Strictly Politics, Media in Focus, Future Perfect, and Storyline will discuss the various facets of the typhoon--its causes, the people who triumphed over it, and the various activities being done to prevent another disaster of the same magnitude.
The 24/7 cable news channel will also air Truths, a documentary on Typhoon Ondoy that chronicles the devastation it brought, and the lives it changed.
Watch Ondoy: A Year Later, the ANC coverage beginning Sunday (September 26) to Thursday (September 30) on SkyCable channel 27.
