Felled coconut tree kills man in Alegria

A MAN from Alegria town, Southern Cebu was killed when a toppled coconut tree fell on his hut just as Tropical Depression Basyang battered the province on Tuesday night.

Jenas Demecillo Allones, 57, is the first reported casualty following Basyang’s entry to Cebu Province Tuesday.

Julius Regner, Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) information officer, said Allones was reportedly sleeping inside his house in Barangay Madridejos at 11 p.m. last night when strong winds brought by Basyang battered Alegria.
