Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES - FMG

Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza sus­pended water sports ac­tiv­i­ties in the city yes­ter­day amidst strong winds.

Although trop­i­cal de­pres­sion Basyang al­ready left Cebu, Radaza said the City Dis­as­ter Risk Re­duc­tion and Man­age­ment Of­fice (CDRRMO) con­tin­ues to mon­i­tor the weather.

Lapu-Lapu is one of the ar­eas in Cebu that is known for para­sail­ing and div­ing, among oth­ers. The shops’ usual cus­tomers are for­eign­ers.

In a press con­fer­ence yester- day, Radaza said that the City Govern­ment tried to con­trol sea ac­tiv­i­ties so in­ci­dents in the past will not be re­peated.

If the City re­ceives a re­port of es­tab­lish­ments de­fy­ing her warn­ing, Radaza said their busi­ness per­mit will be re­voked.

As of noon yes­ter­day, the City said no water sports ac­tiv­i­ties were mon­i­tored.

In Man­daue City, Felix Suico Jr. of the CDRRMO said a house was dam­aged af­ter a mango tree fell on it in Purok 4, Barangay Cubacub last Tues­day.

No one was in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

Both Lapu-Lapu and Man­daue sus­pended classes in preschool, el­e­men­tary and high school yes­ter­day due to trop­i­cal de­pres­sion Basyang. /
