Albay Governor Jose Salceda on Monday thanked Sorsogon and Camarines Sur provinces for extending assistance to some Albay towns affected by the situation caused by restive Mayon Volcano.

In posts on his Facebook account, Salceda said Sorsogon gave P550,000 to Daraga, Camalig, Guinobatan, Sto. Domingo and Malilipot.

He said Daraga received P150,000, while the four other towns received P100,000 each.

Salceda also thanked Camarines Sur for sending a medical team to Sto. Domingo town in Albay.

The team includes five doctors and eight nurses.

More than 12,000 families from various areas of Albay at the danger zone of Mayon had been evacuated from their homes since the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology raised the alert level there to “3.”

Alert Level 3 means an eruption is due within weeks.

Sarah Geronimo sings Sarung Banggi

Sarung Banggi was composed by Potenciano B. Gregorio Sr. of Sto. Domingo, Albay on 1897. However, several versions came out year later. There are 3 recognized versions according to Bicol Wikipedia.

During my childhood days, I would hear this over the radio. I don’t memorize the lyrics, but I love its melody.
