One Sad Reality...

The heavy rain started just last week. We thought that it was due to low pressure area but I woke up yesterday that it was flooding all over the town. My sister returned home early because the Mayor ordered to cut the classes to all the School because the situation seem to be out of control. At around 1:00 PM during that day, I received a bad news, there was a landslide which killed 2 people.

It is indeed a sad reality... We really don't know what might happen next.. We don't know what might happen after a minute...

Here's the story:

Cascading boulders of rocks and sands due to the loosening of soil from a denuded mountain buried alive at least two persons while seriously hurting two others in Purok Gangas, Mangagoy, Bislig City Thursday night, the Caraga Regional Disaster Coordinating Council said.

“As of press time, only two persons were officially reported to have been killed in that unfortunate incident as we are still awaiting our own monitoring team to check the incident,” Office of the Civil Defense Caraga Regional Director Dr. Blanche Gobenciong said.

Gobenciong claimed the local disaster council in the area is still identifying the casualties including those seriously hurt.

The Regional Disaster RDCC report claimed the four were on motorcycles when boulders of rocks and soil loosened up, rolled and hit the four victims who were then passing the mountain side road.

The death of the two victims brings to six the number of casualties in the almost week-long continuing rains that hit Caraga Region at the opening of 2009.

Hi Bhing!

I was saddened by this post. hope everything is okay with you and your family...

the landslide is more likely to be caused by the illegal loggers cutting those essential trees around the area...

hope everything will be fine.
