Another team was also dispatched headed by Angie Layug with 2 rubber boats onboard 2 rescue vans, 1 dump truck with several volunteers. Olongapo Mayor James Gordon sent well trained rescue teams that all proceeded to Dagupan.

In coordination with the US Military & Philippine Military at 2am, 6 rubber boats were deployed with 6 teams from Red Cross Headquarters. These teams headed to Rosales, Villasis and Lingayen to rescue the victims.
