A dry spell that is sapping rivers and creeks in Cebu has so far damaged P75 million in crops, according to the Agriculture Office. "Nadaut na man tanan tungod sa kainit (This heat has destroyed everything)," a resident told Sun.Star Cebu. All that's left of their river are the cracks on its bed. The dry spell has damaged 40 to 50 percent of the crop production, which includes high-value and domestic vegetables.

Nationwide, the dry spell has caused P10-billion worth of damage in the agriculture sector, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) reported. Central Visayas' losses amounted to some P 1.3 billion, the council said, affecting an estimated 124,515 farmers and their families.

The student nurses who went on Immersion in the southern city of Naga, Cebu were not spared by the impact of El Nino phenomenon. They had to fetch water from the lower areas near the river beds to supply water needed for various activities like the delousing program that necessitates use of water.

The student nurses were given a first-hand experience on how important water is to human existence.
