Pagasa lifts Cebu storm warning, sea travels resume

Following the weakening of tropical cyclone ‘Auring’ on Monday morning, suspension of sea travels in Cebu has been lifted.

Commander Dionlett Ampil of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in Cebu said sea travels in Cebu has resumed at 10:30 a.m. except for Samar and Leyte because of gale warning.

Tropical cyclone ‘Auring’ has weakened into a low pressure area (LPA) at 10:30 a.m on Monday.

 

Vhan Singson, weather specialist of Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services (Pagasa) Mactan said signal number one in all areas has been lifted.

“It weakened to an LPA because of its landfalls and several land interaction,” Singson told Cebu Daily News.

The weather bureau also verified that ‘Auring’ made its landfall four times, not two times as earlier reported. It made landfalls in Siargao Island, Dinagat Island, Southern Leyte and Bohol.

“Earlier we said Auring made a second landfall in Bohol. But when we verified the data, it actually made two landfalls before Bohol. It also made landfall in Dinagat Island and Southern Leyte,” she said.

Singson however said that southern Cebu will still experience light to moderate rains today brought about by the LPA.

‘Auring’ leaves one dead in Toledo City

 

A 15-year-old girl drowned after being washed away by floodwaters due to heavy rains brought about by tropical cyclone ‘Auring’ in Barangay Landahan, Toledo City on Monday morning.

Engineer Alexander Abella, disaster risk reduction management officer of Toledo City, said Hannah Bea Villaflores’ body was recovered in Sitio Angkay at 11:40 a.m., about three kilometers from the area where she was washed away.

“Based on the initial reports we got, she was assisting a car that was passing by the area. The flood water was already at chest level and she was washed away by the strong water current,” Abella said in a phone interview.

 

Abella said witnesses saw Villaflores lost her balance and hurting her head before she disappeared into the water.

Several barangays in Toledo City, including Captain Claudio, Canlumampao, Cambang-og, Carmen and portions of barangay Poblacion, experienced flooding due to heavy rain showers since Sunday night.

As of Monday noon, at least 20 families were already evacuated at Barba Sports Complex in Toledo City.

Abella said Villaflores is the first reported casualty at the wake of tropical cyclone ‘Auring’.

As of 10:30 a.m., the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services (Pagasa) has lifter the storm warning in Cebu and other areas. Sea travels, except for those bound for Samar and Leyte, has also resumed.

I noticed that. Another wasted school day today by declaring a Signal 1. I'm starting to think that windytv.com isn't a very good forecasting tool. It sure looked like we were going to get plastered, but it just bounced right over the top of us without much impact. We did get rain, but nothing significant.

The sun is peeking through here now, we got almost nothing from this, just a few sprinkles since Friday.

 

I guess the BossHogged it all!

We're still without power here. A couple of big towers went down in Agusan and Survival del Norte. The NGCP says it will be a few more days at least till they get them fixed.

 

The LGU here has been distributing food aid. Young's Town corned beef, Atami sardines, noodles, coffee, and lots of undesirable NDA rice.

 

Got eighteen registered voters in my household. They dumped off a lot of food.

Yesterday, when the Signal 1 was in effect, nothing happened. Today, after the Signal 1 has expired, it is raining by the bucket load. There was no school yesterday, but today there is school, and the students will look like drowned rats.

Strange that now we get hit with some heavy rain here in Cebu City.  Some heavy downpours last night and some steady rain since mid-morning, the most I've seen since this storm started coming through.

Haha!  Exactly!  And I have to head over to get the kid from school soon...

Looks like a lot of your neighbors are without power as well up that way. Hope it gets restored soon for you guys.

 

 

400,000 households still without power after 'Nina'
 
MANILA – Two weeks after Typhoon “Nina” (international name: Nock-Ten) struck on Christmas Day, 400,000 households are still without power, the Department of Energy said Tuesday.
 
Additional personnel have been deployed to speed up power restoration, which stood at 76 percent after electricity was brought back to 1.3 million of 1.7 million affected households, said energy undersecretary Wimpy Fuentebella.
Fuentebella said restoration work was a “challenge” in the island province of Marinduque, where only 21 percent has been restored, and in Camarines Sur province.
 
Tropical depression “Auring,” which struck Mindanao earlier this week, damaged two power transmission facilities on the island, he said.

The local weather reporting is in need of overhaul. I saw one map that said the storm has passed, and another that it is still near Negros. Most of the new drainage system they put into Lapu Lapu was done by National Government,  no joint  operation with local city engineering office, so today as I went to city hall, the roads were flooded on one side ( side without drains) and clear on other side. City hall grounds were a lake.

Auring in Cebu: Heavy rains bring floods as rivers swell, causing damage

Yesterday’s continuous heavy rains resulted to the swelling of rivers and flooding in different parts of Cebu.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pag-asa) said the amount of rainfall recorded yesterday was 64 millimeters. The heaviest rainfall was at 10:10 a.m.

In Consolacion town, the Pitogo man-made creek and the Cansaga river overflowed and at least 20 families from Barangays Pitogo and Cansaga were temporarily evacuated at the covered court complex and at Consolacion National High School.

 

Consolacion Mayor Teresa Alegado said classes in public schools were suspended yesterday afternoon.
“Nagsugat na ang tubig sa sapa ug baha maong nisaka ang tubig (Water from the creek and flood waters contributed to the swelling of the river),” Alegado said.

Consolacion Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (LDRRMO) head Danilo Capampangan said, “Nataymingan taob ang dagat ug nagsige og ulan-ulan maong nisaka ang tubig. Nag-abot na man ang baha ug tubig sa sapa (It was high tide when it was raining that is why the water overflowed),” he said.

Mandaue City

In Mandaue City, the 6.5 Socialized Housing area in Paknaan experienced severe flooding yesterday. Mayor Luigi Quisumbing ordered residents in the area to evacuate to the 6.5 Multipurpose Hall.

Last Monday evening, the Butuanon river overflowed and flooded nearby houses.
“Around 14 to 20 houses were affected. Nibaha sa kabalayan (The houses were flooded) with about two to three feet of water from the elevation of their flooring, said LDRRMO chief Felix Suico Jr.

He said residents refused to evacuate.

“But should the river rise further, we will force them to evacuate,” Suico said.
Rodrigo Aniga, a resident of 6.5 relocation site, said his house was flooded on Monday and he had to clean up the mud brought by the floodwaters.

The next day, his house was flooded again.

He was dismayed by the delay of the construction of a riprap to protect them from landslides brought about by the swelling of the Butuanon river.

A fiber glass boat is now on standby in the area.
Classes in the elementary and high school levels were likewise canceled because of the downpour.

Forecast

Pag-asa weather specialist Alice Canasa, said the rains will still continue because of the low pressure area (LPA ) and northeast monsoon, although it would not be as heavy as yesterday’s downpour.

Tropical Depression “Auring” may have fizzled to a Low Pressure Area (LPA), but the weather bureau forecast overcast skies, with light rain showers tomorrow and Friday.

Canasa said they are monitoring a cloud formation outside PAR which might develop into a low pressure area.

Meanwhile, the Cebu provincial police stations were directly ordered to also monitor the weather in their respective areas of responsibility.

Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) acting director Senior Supt. Eric Noble said, “Every three hours may situation report sila. May coordination na sila sa local disaster offices, hindi lang yung tao nila ang imo-monitor pati yung tubig para masabihan yung tao (They are already coordinating with the local disaster offices).”.

Toledo City

The floods in Toledo City last Monday were in part caused by clogged drainage systems.

According to Epitacio Cristuta, school principal of the North Central School in Barangay Luray 1, the clogged drainage in the school brought about by filling materials from a nearby construction project caused flooding in classrooms.

Chest-deep flood waters submerged Sitio Kalubihan, Barangay Sangi. At least 89 residents were evacuated to the Sangi Elementary School, at the barangay hall and the covered court. Others opted to stay with relatives.

According to Neil Nemenso, while flooding was not unusual in the area, Monday’s flood was unusually deep.
Barangay Sangi Councilor Marcelo Masayon Jr. said the waters came from nearby mountains, aggravated by the clogged drainage full of trash.

Of the seven sitios in Barangay Sangi, four were greatly damaged by the floods – Kalubian, Purok Tisa, Caimito and Nangka.

In nearby Barangay Carmen, a big chunk of the access road leading to Barangay Kapitan Claudio was washed away by overflowing waters from a nearby creek and left the road with ankle-deep floods.

Carmen resident Roel Sepada said this was the second time the village was flooded in a span of two months and the road washed away.

While the rains abated in the city yesterday, flood waters started to subside. Affected residents are now trying to recover from their losses.
The Toledo City Social Welfare Management Office will start distributing relief packs today to the storm victims.

Landslides

Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB-7) identified 789 barangays in Central Visayas as highly susceptible to landslides and flooding.

In Cebu, these barangays came from the towns and cities of Alcantara, Alegria, Aloguinsan, Argao, Asturias, Badian, Balamban, Barili, Bogo City,
Boljoon, Carcar, Carmen, Cebu City, Compostela, Consolacion, Daanbantayan, Dalaguete, Danao City, Dumanjug, Ginatilan, Liloan, Malabuyoc, Mandaue City, Medellin, Moalboal, Oslob, Pinamungahan, Poro, Ronda, Samboan, San Francisco, Sibonga, Sogod, Tabuelan, Toledo City, Tuburan, and Tudela.

Al Emil Berador, chief geologist at MGB-7, appealed to the public to monitor weather updates from Pagasa.
“The continuous rains will trigger possible landslides and flooding in low-lying areas,” he said..
“Preemptive evacuation is highly encouraged to save lives and properties,” Berador said.With Rene F. Alima, Dominic D. Yasay and Norman V. Mendoza
