LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu—The dark skies and intermittent rains prompted organizers to move the Miss Universe swimwear presentation indoors.

Ren Orao, marketing executive of JPark Island Resort and Waterpark Cebu, said they were moving the venue from the outdoor Abalone garden to the resort’s Triton Ballroom that could accommodate 600 people.

The swimwear presentation was scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Two stages had been put up at the Abalone Garden to serve as runway for the 87 candidates.

But it had been raining in Cebu since Monday spawned by a low pressure area, prompting the organizers to go to “Plan B,” Triton Ballroom.
