MGB 2 says geohazard mapping nearing completion

Tuguegarao City (2 February) -- The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) said the geohazard mapping in the region will soon be completed.

MGB Regional Director Mario A. Ancheta said during yesterday's Tipon-Tipan program that 92 percent of the five municipalities in the region had been mapped as of last month.

Based on the MGB's initial mapping, the province of Nueva Vizcaya has been identified as landslide prone area due to its terrain while some municipalities of Cagayan are prone to floods.

Ancheta said the project is aimed at determining the susceptibility of areas to landslides, floods, liquefaction, ground subsidence and other ground instabilities.

"We are also identifying the possible relocation sites for residents living in areas prone to dangers brought by natural calamities", Ancheta added.

"As soon as we complete the mapping, the generation of geo-hazard maps will follow. The maps will be printed and reproduced", Ancheta assured.

"We will also conduct information campaigns to increase public awareness and familiarize them with geohazard maps as well as their uses.

The only unmapped areas are the coastal towns of Isabela and Cagayan. (PIA 2) [top]
