There are texts message I received last March 14, 2011 stating that radiation from Japan will affect the Philippines. Hence, the message is giving us warning of a possible problem that might detrimental to our health. This is because the fuel rods at the Unit 2 reactor at Japan's Fukishima Daiichi Plant are fully exposed.
National Telecommunications Communication (NTC) should penalize people behind this prank text message. It is just an effect of abuse of text unlimited service and promos of telcos. The message produced panic among people specially in Cebu.
People should be aware of this kind of messages and call government agencies to confirm the veracity of this information. Doing so will not cause panic to the public amidst disasters, unrests and destabilization. Be careful of these messages and be ready for a disaster anytime.
