Downpour ties up traffic; rains continueCebu Daily News
A downpour at 2 p.m. yesterday triggered knee-deep flood water in low-lying parts of downtown Cebu City and stalled traffic when two trees fell on a passing SUV.
The driver escaped unhurt but the crash blocked a portion of a main road from Talamban to Cebu City.
Street floods were also noted in Salinas Drive in Lahug and slowed traffic in barangay Subangdaku along Hernan Cortes Street of Mandaue City and in Panagdait in Mabolo after the Subangdaku Creek overflowed.
Several vehicles including jeepneys were stranded along M. J. Cuenco Avenue. Ankle deep water covered parts of the Mandaue national highway near the Subangdaku creek forcing passengers to walk.

Another low pressure area was spotted east of Bicol, but it was still outside the Philippine area of responsibility, forecasters said.
