Vigilance urged
against landslides

Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology Director, Renato Solidum, is warning about the possibility of more landslides in Negros Oriental, saying conditions there raise the chance for such occurrence.

"The combination of rainfall and aftershocks reinforce the possibility for landslides there," he said.

He gave the warning as Negros Oriental authorities reported rainfall in the province this week from the low pressure area (LPA), which the government weather agency estimated at 130 kilometers east-northeast of Palawan province's Puerto Princesa City as of 2 a.m. of Thursday.
