TENSION CRACKS AND LANDSLIDES

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Region 12 has initially recommended the possible road re-routing and relocation of houses directly affected by tension cracks and landslides in several sitios of Brgy. Ned in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato.

This was bared after the agency conducted a reassessment in the area.

According to MGB 12, the road networks and portions of the affected sitios subsided, which eventually led to the occurence of landslides in the area.

The said hazards, according to the agency, are the results of the incessant and heavy rains in the past weeks. | Report and Photos by: MGB Region 12
