After a heavy downpour last friday, several areas in Cebu and Mandaue were submerged in water. The roads along Mahiga creek had knee-deep floods and several subdivisions in Banilad and Kasambagan areas experienced flooding. In Mandue 11 barangays were flooded.
The Mandaue City Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Council (CRRDMC), led by Mayor Jonas Cortes, wants the City Council to declare a state of calamity. According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the heavy rains brought by the La Niña phenomenom will last until 2012.
Another low pressure area is expected to enter the country in 1 to 2 days. It will be named Ramon once it is in the Philippine waters. It is expected to affect the Visayas and Souther Luzon areas.
