THE downpour on Saturday morning, June 12, 2021, caused riverbanks to overflow in Metro Cebu, flooding several areas and damaging houses and establishments.
The Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) recorded flooding in Barangays Malubog, Lorega, Ermita and Zapatera.
Various waterways in the city also overflowed, including the river in Sitio Pili in Barangay Malubog and the Tejero Creek. Water spilled into Gen. Maxilom Ave. as the water level rose.
CDRRMO officer-in-charge Ramil Ayuman said at least 17 families were evacuated in Sitio Pili to the barangay gym after floodwater entered their houses.
The CDRRMO also responded to a landslide in Sitio Locana in Barangay Kalunasan and in Sitio Bakilid in Barangay Lahug.
Ayuman said a quick response team was sent to clear both areas, adding that no one was hurt in the incidents.
His office also recorded three felled trees, but these were immediately cleared.
The CDRRMO continues to monitor the city for possible effects of the heavy rain.
