Things are looking pretty bad there for sure. 

Cagayan de Oro’s SOS: more big trucks, more volunteers please
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (MindaNews/ 16 Jan) —  “Rescue operations  going on but we need more big trucks and volunteers.”
This sums up the SOS message posted on the Facebook page of the Cagayan de Oro City government at around 8 p.m. Monday, after continuous heavy rains since early afternoon left thousands of residents stranded in schools and offices due to waist-deep or neck-deep floods.



FloodPH: Areas in Cagayan de Oro where forced evacuation is ordered
(UPDATED) On January 16, Cagayan de Oro orders forced evacuation of residents in areas that are prone to flooding

San Simon
"Evacuate as soon as possible," Liza Mazo, Office of Civil Defense (OCD) director in Region X, earlier said, advising affected residents to seek temporary shelter in designated evacuation centers and safer areas. (READ: Thousands stranded as flash floods hit Cagayan de Oro)
The city council declared Cagayan de Oro under state of calamity before dawn Tuesday, January 17, after the streets were submerged in neck-deep floods triggered by the nonstop rains Monday afternoon.
Evacuation centers
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) reported on Monday night that its field office in the region is closely coordinating with the Cagayan de Oro City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) to identify the evacuation centers that were opened and the number of evacuees that need assistance.
According to the Cagayan de Oro social welfare and development officer Teddy Sabugaa, the city has opened at least 3 evacuation centers:
Bulua covered court in Barangay Bulua, where there are 27 families or 117 people
Nazareth covered court, where there are 22 families
4th Infantry Division Gymnasium in Patag, where there are 30 families or 120 individuals
Below is the list of other open evacuation centers:
Agusan gym
Aluba Catholic Church
Barangay 7 barangay hall
Bonbon covered court
Bugo gym
Canitoan covered court
Corrales Elementary School
Macasandig covered court
Xavier University covered courts
As of Monday night, at least 31 families from from Barangay Canitoan have been affected by the flooding. At least two houses in the barangay were totally damaged, while 29 others were partially damaged due to flooding, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) reported.
In Barangay F.S. Catanico, 20 families were affected by flooding.
In a Facebook post, DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo said Monday night that "prepositioned goods of DSWD Field Office 10 are now on standby in the 5 provinces of Northern Mindanao: Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Misamis Oriental.
Stay awake and alert
"Huwag munang matulog at magbantay (Stay awake, stay alert), Listen to the advisories from PAGASA and the LGUs," Mazo reminded affected residents.
It has been rainy in various parts of the country due to a low pressure area (LPA) in Mindanao and the tail-end of a cold front affecting the Visayas.
In a bulletin issued 5:00 pm on Monday, January 16, state weather bureau PAGASA said the LPA is in the vicinity of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay.
On Tuesday, moderate to heavy rain is expected in the Visayas, the regions of Northern Mindanao and the Zamboanga Peninsula, and the province of Palawan. Those areas should be on alert for floods and landslides. PAGASA warned.



The problem is that the rains fell over a large area, so the rain that fell in the mountains will have an affect on the rivers for a few days as well. 
They are getting a break since the heating of the day has been lost, Unfortunately there is still a lot of moisture in the atmosphere and once the sun starts heating things up again tomorrow the heavy rains will develop in the same areas once again. There was also a lot of rain this evening north and west of Davao City, so I expect the rivers and streams here will get pretty high tomorrow with the run off.
