Landslide zones found in La Union

0

SAN FERNANDO CITY: The Philippine Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) will deploy landslide sensors after it discovered on Thursday signs of possible dangerous landslide zones in Barangay Nagyubuyuban here. Edna Patricia Mendoza, Phivolcs senior science research specialist, noted that a massive movement of underground soil has created cracks in the concrete flooring of several houses in the village while the landscape of adjacent areas had collapsed for about six feet. The cracks are signs of massive soil movement probably caused by an active crawling of soil. Erinia Judan, one of the owners of the house found with cracks, said the faults appeared after a heavy rain last year.
