  • Bobby Elison masyado na delikado ito baka sa susunod land slide na tuloy tuloy p nman ang buhos ng ulan. Eng'g dept. kindly survey the mountainous area na may mga bahay sa baba lalo na sa parte ng mabayuan at gordon heights update the residents and evacuate them if necessary to do so. GOD bless olongapo.

  • Sung Rae Joon to engg dept of the city: pls initiate immediate remedial measure asap. dont wait for this rock to fall, its so stupid to do that waiting. put enough cables that will hold the rock. anchor these cables to a "dead man" that has sufficient in weight enough to hold the weight of the big rock that is going to fall. place the "dead man" in a stable place and make sure it is anchored also in a stable ground.

  • Sung Rae Joon put also additional supports that will hold the big rock. consider putting
    massive riprap wall below the big rock. riprap should act as a unit by providing enough wire mesh or cyclone wire. you will need a lot of manpower here. mobilize the residents of tabacuhan and sta rita. dont waste time.
