Disaster team convened, Loboc flooding continues 
AS police and disaster authorities are presently convening to discuss and coordinate operations, the Loboc River continues to rise, breaching an estimated two meter from its banks. 
The flooding has reached about lapped from 2 inches above the landing at the Loboc Tourism Complex at 8:00 monitoring to about 42 inches noontime and the water continues to rise, local contacts report. 
Early this morning, two gates at the Ewon Hydro power pant in up-river town of Sevilla was opened due to water build-up in its dams breaching critical levels.
Eyewitness accounts tell that the flood has reached the top level of the two meter flood control embankments erected along the town river sides.
Another source said a house owned by the Jimenez’ has already been flooded, it being in the lowest part and reachable by floodwaters. 
A formerly critical area in the national highway near the lowlying ricefields of Barangay Gotozon has already been spared as the government raised the road levels recently.
A few inches more and the national road portion at the back of the town church and convent would be flooded, said confirmed a Loboc Tourism Complex worker on telephone interview. 
On this, school children at the Loboc Central Elementary school who comes from far-flung areas and especially those who would have to cross the bridge were already sent home.
