Crops damage caused by field flooding seen 
FLOODING of rice-fields and possible damage to agricultural crops have been so far the ill-effects of the moderate rain that has continued to pour in most areas in Bohol since January 17. 
Possible damage to rice-fields and crops was reported in Alicia and Carmen towns where rice-lands were flooded. Several areas in barangay Villahermoso of Carmen town were also reported of impassable roads due to flooding. 
A national highway in Larapan Jagna was temporarily rendered impassable by a fallen coconut tree, but disaster authorities said the Department of Public Works and Highways immediately cleared the obstruction at almost the same time. 
The river in the parts of Sevilla town has risen from its banks but it does not endanger life or property since no houses or people live near the river. 
Loboc town has temporarily suspended its floating restaurant and river cruises due to strong river currents brought about by indications of above normal flow of water from the river’s upper tributaries. 
Indications of flooding along the Wahig Pamacsalan River in Inabanga has been noted but local authorities said there is yet no danger as the moderated rains dump only enough but not too much to concern disaster authorities. 
Police station commanders have been instructed by the Provincial Disaster and Risk Reduction management to report any above noral situations in their areas of responsibilities. 
Under close monitoring for flooding are the river towns of Sevilla, Loboc, Loay, Maribojoc, Cortes, Antequera, Loon, Calape, Tubigon, Clarin, Inabanga, Buenavista, Getafe, Trinidad, Alicia, Duero, Jagna, Valencia and Lila. 
Also monitored for possible landslides are mountain barangays of Jagna and Candijay, Loboc and San Isidro towns. (racPIABohol)
