Following the passage of destructive triple typhoons, including the world’s strongest typhoon for 2020, Typhoon Rolly (international name Goni), NGCP commenced relief and restoration efforts to hard-hit provinces in Luzon.

Over P37 million worth of grocery packs and t-shirts are being distributed to provinces hard hit by super Typhoon Rolly in the Southern Tagalog and Bicol Regions, and to flooded areas in the Cagayan Region and NCR in the aftermath of Typhoon Ulysses. 

Thousands of sacks of rice and t-shirts, as well as tens of thousands of canned goods, bottled drinking water, noodles and other food items were distributed to about 100,000 families through local government units.  

Simultaneous with relief operations were restoration activities for the power transmission lines affected by the typhoons. NGCP deployed 4 choppers and over 1,000 personnel working in shifts, when weather and safety conditions permit, to expedite restoration works. NGCP was able to restore transmission services to all areas affected, ahead of schedule.
