MANILA, Philippines – More than 100 families in Poblacion, Alabel, Sarangani province were affected by floods triggered by strong rains last Saturday.

Raging floodwaters inundated Purok 4, Sitio Cogonal and Purok Tagumpay, prompting several residents to flee their homes.

Around 50 hectares of agricultural products were also destroyed.

In Barangay Kawas, motorists were stranded due to an impassible bridge.

Road repairs are ongoing.

The residents have returned to their homes but they fear that more rains in the coming days will trigger floods anew. -- Report from Jay Dayupay and Rhea Lara, ABS-CBN News SOKSARGEN
