Mocha Uson Sends Positive Thoughts To Those Affected By The Kilauea Volcano Eruption, Thinking It Was In Negros

7BCEDC73-BA3D-4710-8B95-28023040C003MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was a repeat performance for USEC Mocha Uson.  Remember when she mistakenly ‘moved’ Mayon Volcano to Naga City?

Today, on her Twitter Account, Uson sent positive thoughts to those who were affected by the recent eruption and lava flow of Kilauea Volcano.

”My prayers go out to the Negrenses,” she said, mistaking Kilauea for Kanlaon.

Kanlaon is an active stratovolcano on the island of Negros, Philippines. It is the highest point in Negros, as well as the whole Visayas. Its last eruption was in 2006.

Kilauea is located in Hawaii’s Big Island.
