Description
LIBON, Albay – Residents of the coastal village of Pantao in Libon town in Albay province woke up Thursday to leg-to-waist-deep flood after heavy rains poured here Wednesday night.

Elmer Aviso Caneta, one of the affected residents said the continuous rain lasted for almost four hours.

“We were caught by surprise, the hammocks I made and about to sell have disappeared after it was carried away by the flood,” he said.

The administration of Pantao elementary school also suspended classes Thursday as the entire campus was submerged in flood waters. Even the St. Raphael Archangel Parish of Pantao was not spared from flooding.

The flood also inconvenienced motorists traversing highways. Debris like pieces of branches and coconut husks brought down by the flood water from the mountains blocked the major canals in the village.
