5 barangays in Talisay flooded

Friday, September 22, 2017

LAST Thursday's heavy rain flooded five barangays in Talisay City.

Christian Bucao, operations head of the Talisay City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, identified these as Barangays Tabunok, Bulacao, Cansojong, San Isidro and Poblacion.

In Barangays Tabunok and Bulacao, the main highway was submerged in water, causing traffic gridlock for several hours.

Water also entered houses in the interior portion of Barangays Cansojong and Poblacion. It did not subside immediately because the water had nowhere to go, Bucao said.

Aside from flooding, a landslide in an urban poor housing site in Barangay Maghaway damaged two houses.

No one was hurt. (JKV)
