La Salle Professor Calls for Help On His Flooded Hometown in Buhi, Camarines Sur

Veteran La Salle Professor and prominent social media personality, Professor Antonio Contreras utilized his popularity on Facebook by calling for help after he received reports of flood devastation from his hometown in Buhi, Camarines Sur.


In one of Professor Antonio Contreras shared post from Buhi Online, his Kababayans experienced the worst flood in Buhi's history and devastated the town right now. Thousands of Buhi residents are being rescued in the dead of night with most single-floor house near the lakeshore and river areas are either partially or fully submerged by this flood.



According to the initial information received from concerned netizens from Buhi, this flood brought about by Bagyong Usman is considered as the flood of the century that is now inundating Buhi.

Buhi Online also noted that people will hopefully now realize that nature is unforgiving especially because the mountains that surround Buhi have practically been stripped of the all-important treess that holds on to water and slowly release it to natural waterways.

Prof. Contreras also shared some photos of his sister's house which is located in an elevated portion of the town and the streets in front of her is already flooded. This can only mean one thing, most of the Poblacion of Buhi is now under water.

In the latest post of Prof. Contreras he noted that Buhi, Camarines Sur is isolated as we speak. The only road going into the town is now impassable. Meanwhile, flood waters are still rising even as the rains are not letting up. Electricity is cut off.



Potable water supply is no longer available and access from neighboring towns are also impaired since Iriga City, Baao and Nabua are also flooded. The Professor is now calling the national government for help with rescue trucks and the asking for air rescue operations.
