Quakes trigger landslides


Earthquakes caused landslides that blocked a road and damaged at least three houses in Barangay Caidiocan, Valencia in Negros Oriental, yesterday, Police Maj. Romeo Cubo, Valencia police chief, said.

The landslides caused big rocks to fall, blocking the Barangay Caidiocan road, that was cleared with the help of the Energy Development Corporation, Cubo said.

The landslides were believed to have been triggered by 3.8 and 3.9 magnitude earthquakes at 1:21 a.m. and 4:05 a.m. yesterday, the police said.

The wall of the house of Joel Ventura Inoveno, 26, of Purok Antulihaw, Barangay Puhagan, Valencia, made of bamboo was hit by a falling rock causing about P3,000 in damage.

Lemuel Maquiling Tuballa, 45, of Purok Maya, Barangay Puhagan, Valencia also reported that a concrete portion of his kitchen collapsed causing damage estimated at P10,000, and Florencio Lagrama Sr., 66, of Purok Alimokon, Barangay Puhagan, said damage to his kitchen and living room was worth about P10,000.*
