Philippine president Arroyo said on Sunday that rescue operations for the victims of typhoon Ondoy would continue until every one of them is accounted for, and that the government would help them rebuild their homes.

"We are continuing our rescue operations until the last of our countrymen in peril is accounted for, then we will repair our damaged infrastructure and assist our people in rebuilding their homes and returning to normalcy," Mrs. Arroyo said in a statement.

She said that as part of the government's assistance, she has directed the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) "to ensure a steady supply of foodstuffs and other essentials at reasonable prices to consumers."

"Likewise, the Department of Energy is directed to secure the availability of gasoline, LPG and similar products under normal terms," she said.

"Ondoy was a once in a lifetime typhoon, an extreme event whose record rainfall all strained our response capabilities to the limit but ultimately did not break us," she added.
