Lapu halts water sports on V-Day
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. /
