A strong current of water due to flash flood also damaged a bridge in Hinobaan, making it totally impassable, a photograph of it was shared by town Councilor Jason Tupas on his Facebook.

A bridge collapsed in Hinobaan.

In another post, the councilor shared photos of livestocks that have been washed away after heavy and incessant rainfall. The councilor appealed to those who were able to rescue these animals to turn it over to the barangay so owners can properly claim it.
