/ 11:22 AM January 20, 2013

DAVAO CITY — -Several riverside villages here have been submerged in floodwater since Saturday after the Davao River overflowed following non-stop rainfall due to low pressure area over Mindanao.

Flooded barangays include Maa, Matina and Bankerohan, responding police forces said.

In some areas, including the El Rio Subdivision, the floodwater was already waist-deep.


Reports coming from Davao Oriental revealed that heavy rain and strong wind also battered the typhoon-devastated towns of Boston, Cateel and Baganga.

Police, government soldiers and the city’s Central 911 rescue teams are conducting rescue and evacuation operations in the affected areas.
