The airport suspended operations at 6:52 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16, just as violent typhoon winds started to lash Cebu.
In a statement issued in the early hours of Friday, Dec. 17, GMCAC announced that it was suspending operations until further notice because of damage from the typhoon.
The typhoon struck Cebu Thursday evening after leaving a trail of destruction in Surigao provinces and Bohol.
