Tornado kills 1, injures 4 in Valencia City

By Ruby Leonora R. Balistoy

VALENCIA CITY NEWS – A tornado ripped through three (3) villages in Valencia City, Bukidnon, killing a one-year-old boy and injuring four (4) people at 4:30 p.m., Saturday, September 3.

Reports reaching Gov. Alex Calingasan said the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC), immediately, responded through the emergency rescue teams of the Army Reserve Command, 1003rd CDC, City DRRMC emergency rescue units, ABC Eagles and Kabalikat Civicom Volunteers, among others.

The medical examiner’s report said ‘drowning' ruled the cause of 1-year-old James Alumin’s death, Arsenio Alagenio, Executive Officer of the PDRRMC, said.

James’ mother, Mary Grace Alumin, 22, said she saw her one-year old boy swept away by hard-blowing wind waves and slammed the boy upside-down to a nearby National Irrigation Admnistration (NIA) main canal, separating him from her hug, as the strong winds tore off their roofs pulling up their frail house.
