Heavy rain and thunderstorms caused flooding in parts of Visayas and Mindanao, stranding travelers and damaging homes and properties.
In Misamis Oriental, weather bureau PAGASA said it recorded almost a month’s volume of rain due to the effects of 2 weather disturbances — a low pressure area, and the tail-end of a cold front.
Several areas in Cagayan de Oro were also submerged when creeks and canals overflowed due to continuous heavy rain in previous days. While roads became passable Tuesday as water continued to subside, a state of calamity was declared for the welfare of residents affected by flood water.
ABS-CBN’s Lingkod Kapamilya distributed relief packs to families affected by flooding.
In its 24-hour forecast issued Tuesday afternoon, PAGASA warned that Eastern Visayas and Caraga will continue to occasionally experience heavy rain and thunderstorms, while the rest of Visayas and Mindanao will have light to moderate rains, and isolated thunderstorms.
