Nakatakdang magdeklara si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ng state of calamity sa Boracay Island.

Sinabi ni Pangulong Duterte na kailangan itong gawin dahil maraming pamilya ang maaapektuhan sa pagpapatupad ng batas partikular ang forest land for tourism purposes.

Ngayon pa lamang ay nagbabala na ang Pangulo sa regional trial court na huwag sumawsaw sa problema sa Boracay sa pag-iisyu ng temporary restraining order (TRO) sa anumang hakbang na gagawin ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Inihayag niya na magagamit ang calamity fund para matulungan ang mga maaapektuhan sa pagpapatupad ng batas.

Iniisip pa ni Digong kung 60 araw o 6 buwan para tapusin ang problema sa Boracay.

SINABI ni Communications Sec. Martin Andanar na nakikipagugnayan na sila sa National Housing Authority (NHA) para tulungan magkaroon ng sariling mga bahay ang mga kagawad ng media.

Ginawa ni Andanar ang pahayag sa nakaraang inagurasyon ng tanggapan ng Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFOMS) sa 2nd floor, West Wing, William J. Shaw Building, San Rafael, Malacañang Complex, San Miguel, Manila.

Si Andanar ay co-chairman din ng PTFOMS kasama ni Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre.

Sinabi ni Sec. Andanar na ang pagtatatag ng PTFOMS na pinamumunuan ni Executive Director Usec. Joel Egco ay patunay lamang sa hangarin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na mabigyang proteksyon ang mga mamamahayag sa bansa.

Kasabay nito, inianunsyo ni Andanar ang programang pabahay para sa mga mamahayag.

Nakipag-ugnayan na raw ang kanyang kanyang tanggapan sa National Housing Authority (NHA) para sa nasabing programa.

Alam daw nila ang sitwasyon ng maraming mamamahayag na wala pang sariling bahay at nagbubuwis ng buhay sa kanilang trabaho.

Maliban sa pabahay, inaayos na rin daw ng Presidential Communications Operations Office ang kasunduan sa iba’t ibang mga pagamutan sa buong bansa para sa medical assistance sa mga mamahayag.
