At least twenty (20) houses were damaged by flashfloods which swept along Tukuran Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur last Friday afternoon.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the floods were brought about by heavy rains in Tukuran’s mountainous areas which flowed into Barangays Camanga and Upper Bayao.

The Barangay Camanga river overflowed at 4:40 p.m. resulting to floods which covered the barangays’ fice fields and swept through the houses and destroyed some road railings.

The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Office (MDRRO) personnel proceeded to the areas and assisted the affected families.

The floods subsided at around 5p.m. that same day.  No casualites were reported.  (L. Jocson)
