Flash flood destroys P6M
G-Hernandez crops, infra

(Tagbilaran City) March 17, 2011 (PIA) ---A FLASHFLOOD spawned by rains in the mountain barangays of Garcia Hernandez town spilled into town and destroyed some P6 million of crops and public infrastructure.

At least six barangays reported damages in agriculture and waterworks systems as Manaba River and small creeks overflowed from its banks and breached into nearby rice-fields, residential areas and temporarily rendering the national highway impassable to light vehicles at least in, reports said.

Mayor Miguelito Galendez said the town planning and agriculture officers have appraised the damages to crops at P5M and another P1M for public infrastructure, mostly waterworks systems.

In a radio interview, Galendez added that some residents report a lost carabao and calves, believed to be washed by the floods. 

No one however was reported hurt, said local resident Melchor Virador on Facebook.

He named affected barangays as Lungsod-daan, East Canaya-on, West Canayaaon, Candulao, Manaba, Malinao, Antipolo, Datag, Tabuan and Togbongon.

Rice ripe for harvest were washed out by the unusually huge bulk of water from the mountains overwhelming creeks and food control dikes, Galendez reported.

Municipal information Officer Lindsey Marie Vismanos shared photos of people treading in waters flooding the national highway at barangay West Canayaon.

She also said she received reports that waters went as high as neck-deep in some areas.

Mayor Galendez also reported that a barangay road leading to Togbongon from barangay Tabuan has become impassable due to a cut portion of the road caused by minor landslides. 

Along the stretch of national highway to eastern Bohol towns, unconfirmed reports of floodings were also reported in Dimiao and Guindulman towns.

Meanwhile, landslide prone barangay Mayana of Jagna also had unconfirmed reports of rains spawned flashfloods. (Rey Anthony Chiu)
