In a report from the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Office (DRRMO), it said that the weather phenomenon lasted for about 15 minutes which caused road closure for several hours.

A structure of the village day care center was also damaged when the tornado ripped through. But no casualties were reported.
