Heavy rains trigger floods in Cebu


Heavy rains triggered widespread flooding in low-lying communities in Metro Cebu particularly in downtown Cebu City, North Reclamation area and Mandaue City on Tuesday afternoon (September 4).




Several vehicles searching for alternative routes to avoid the floodwater were also stranded. Colon, M.J. Cuenco Ave. and Mabolo areas were heavily affected by the traffic after most of the roads in the city became impassable to vehicles and Some conked out in the middle of the road.

Some had to pay P5~P10 to ride on the improvised boats and "traysikad" just to go to the other side of the road. Hundreds of workers, shoppers and students were stuck on the roadside for several hours waiting for the water to subside.

Floodwaters reached knee-level in Kaohsiung St., North Reclamation area as Mahiga Creek in Mabolo overflowed.

Other affected areas are: Barangays Sto. NiƱo., Tejero, Tinago, San Roque and M.J. Cuenco Ave.


The rains ceased only around 4 p.m.

As of this posting, no casualties or missing persons were reported.
