THE Mines and Geosciences Bureau has intensified its information campaign on how to cope with landslides and floods. “We are amplifying our information campaign in areas where landslides and episodes of flooding will most likely occur,” said MGB 7 Director Loreto Alburo.

“We should be very vigilant and alert at all times as we don’t know when heavy rains will occur, especially those communities that live near or at the foot of the mountains, as many geohazards are rain-induced,” Alburo said.

MGB 7 identified portions of mountain barangays of Cebu City, Balamban, Toledo City, Pinamungajan, Dumanjug, Ronda, Asturias, Catmon and Talisay City as prone to landslides. The geohazard mapping identifies possible settlement sites, properties and infrastructure that could be affected by landslides.

The activity also identified areas that are prone to floods, landslides, mudflows and other ground movements. Areas that are prone to landslides are sites of recent ground movements and those that have numerous and large tension cracks that would directly affect the community.

Landslides are also likely to occur in areas that are natural drainages or waterways and steep slopes.

These areas in Cebu City are Barangays Lusaran, Binaliw, Guba, Budlaan, Malubog, Buot-Taup, Busay, Sirao, Taptap, Tagbao, Tabunan, Pung-ol Sibugay, Sudlon II, Sudlon I, Sinsin, Buhisan, Pamutan, Sapangdaku, and Adlaon.

Also prone to landslides are Barangays Hingatmonan, Lamesa, Luca, Ginatilan, Cabasiangan, Matun-og, Canso-moroy, Gaas, Magsaysay, Cabagdalan, and Duangan in Balamban. Other landslide-prone areas are Tungkay, Pangamihan, Bagacay, Loay and Don Andres Sorian in Toledo City; Barangay Lamac in Pinamungajan; and Agbanga, Baye, Bairan, Kanluangan and Sak-sak in Asturias.

There are also 12 barangays in Catmon that are prone to landslides as well as all mountain barangays in Talisay City, Barangay Doldol Purok 3 in Dumanjug and Barangay Cansalonoy in Ronda town.
