The NDRRMC said 80 families were evacuated from Cumawan village in Bislig City in Surigao del Sur due to flooding.

Floods in Bislig City were knee-deep due to continuous rain since Friday, the NDRRMC said.

But the 80 families were allowed to return to their homes as of 7 p.m. Friday after the floodwater subsided, it added.

Heavy rains flood 2 Mindanao provinces

DAVAO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / Jan. 14, 2012) – Heavy rains on Saturday submerged many villages in three towns in Compostela Valley and Davao del Norte provinces in the southern Philippines.

Government troops were sent to the provinces to help respond to the flash floods in the towns of Laak in Compostela Valley and in Davao del Norte’s San Isidro and Kapalong towns said Army Captain Rosa Maria Cristina Manuel, of the 10th Infantry Division.

“Over 100 families have been evacuated in the town of Kapalong. The highway connecting the two provinces is also flooded,” she said, adding the flood was as deep as three feet and many areas were without electricity.

“Disaster rescue and response units from the 60th Infantry Battalion and 1003rd Infantry Brigade are deployed on the said areas in partnership with local governments to respond to the latest disaster,” Manuel said.

Just last week, heavy rains triggered a landslide in Compostela Valley’s Pantukan town, burying at least 40 people and many others are still missing.

The landslide struck the village of Napnapan where small scale miners have operated the past years despite repeated government warnings to stay away from the area due to dangers pose by illegal tunnels and erosion. (Mindanao Examiner)

40 Bicol towns identified as geo-hazard areas

LEGASPI CITY, Philippines – Forty municipalities in Bicol Region are highly susceptible to natural disasters with the provinces of Camarines Sur and Catanduanes being on top of the lists, the Mines and Geo-sciences Bureau office here revealed.

Of the number, 26 municipalities are high risk for flooding while 14 towns are highly susceptible to landslides.

Luis Loyola, MGB regional director, said these areas were identified following the completion of the 50,000-scale Bicol geo-hazard mapping done by his office under the Geohazard Mapping and Assessment Project (GMAP)

A more detailed 10,000-scale map is now being undertaken with the province of Albay as the primary focus, he said.

Arlene Dayao, supervising geologist and head of the Geosciences Division, said geo-hazard maps had been distributed to LGUs, including barangay officials since they are the ones on the front lines.

“We have already informed the local government units of these hazard areas and MBG had conducted series of seminars to explain the details of our findings,” she said in an interview with Media Solutions.

Dayao said it was crucial that local officials of these hazard areas consider the data contained in the maps in coming up with their disaster-risk reduction plans as well as their land use maps to avoid disasters that might hit vulnerable areas.

Local officials should no longer allow human habitation on areas that had been identified as high-risk for flooding and landslides, she stressed.

Based on the geo-hazard mapping conducted by the MGB, almost half of Camarines Sur’s municipalities are classified as high risk areas for flooding, which include the towns of Baao, Bato, Bombon, Buhi, Bula, Cabusao, Calabanga, Camaligan, Canaman, Gainza, Libmanan, Magarao, Milaor, Minalabac, Nabua and San Fernando which are mostly part of the Bicol River Basin.

Dayao said the Bato- Baao areas serve as catch basin of flood waters from Albay before it flow north up to Naga City and San Fernando.

Three towns in Albay- Libon, Oas and Polangui are also classified as flood-prone areas together with the municipalities of Bato and Viga in Catanduanes, Juban in Sorsogon, Mercedez, Talisay and Vinzons in Camarines Norte.

The cities of Legazpi, Tabaco and Naga were classified as moderately susceptible to floodings.

Meanwhile, Catanduanes has been identified as the most landslide-prone province in the region based on the same study conducted by MGB.

“Mainly it’s because rock formations in that province are already old and cracked and many of its mountains are covered with thick soil which erode during heavy rains” Dayao explained.

She also attributed the hazard to the past commercial logging activities that occurred in Catanduanes wherein illegal cutting of trees still happens until now.

Dayao identified the towns of Caramoran, Gigmoto, San Andres and Viga as the most flood-prone together with Manito, Sto Domingo and Tiwi in Albay, Capalonga and Labo in Camarines Norte, Pasacao and Sangay in Camarines Sur, Baleno in Masbate and Juban and Magallanes in Sorsogon province.

The cities of Ligao and Sorsogon were listed as moderately prone to landslides.

Aside from the flooding and landslides, Dayao also warned of another geohazard especially in the province of Sorsogon.

The MGB official said ground subsidence or sink holes are observed in at least three areas in the province, the towns of Gubat and Prieto-Diaz, in the district of Bacon in Sorsogon City and in Guinobatan, Albay.

She said sink hole, which vary in depths, usually occurs when lime stones underground are dissolved and carried away by underground water or when the roof of an underground cave collapses.

Flash floods continue to hit Thai South

BANGKOK: Flash floods continue to hit Thai South, where winds and waves remain strong, as the Meteorological Department warns that a low pressure mass is covering Malaysia and Thailand's southern region from Jan 13-15, bringing downpours from Chumphon Province southward with heavy falls in some areas, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

In Satun Province, overflow from the Bantad Mountain Range flooded many villages in Khuan Kalong locality of Khuan Kalong District Friday night, causing troubles to more than 50 households which were under about one-metre-high floodwater.

The run-offs were too fast for the locals to save their belongings and pets.

Run-offs also struck many communities in the Tambon Phatong Municipality, an outer area of Hat Yai District of Songkhla Province Saturday morning. Floodwater in a community near the U-tapao Canal rose to 20 centimetres to about one metre, affecting some 100 households for the second time this year. However, floodwater in Songkhla has been receding, prompting local authorities to reopen the main Kanchanawanich Road.

In Narathiwat Province, downpours continue in all its 13 districts and run-offs flooded farmlands and houses in five villages of Romsai locality of
Sukhirin District, causing main roads of at least three villages to become impassable and relief workers to rely on boats to reach local flood victims.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department warned in its updated statement that people in the Thai South living near low lying areas and waterways should take precautions from Saturday until Sunday, during which small boats should also remain ashore, as there will be strong winds and high waves of 2-4 metres in the Gulf of Thailand. - Bernama

He also denied, a puddle of water as high as 30 inches to 50 inches in some areas of Pontianak due to poor drainage arrangement but is due to the low land area of Pontianak.

The phenomenon of a particular area due to flood water submerged Kapoeas occur almost every year during the rainy season is accompanied by the high water mark.

"So we took measures to raise some streets are regularly submerged during the rainy season and high tide with a concrete foundation with a height of 30-50 centimeters, and some have reached a height in excess of one meter," said Sutarmidji.

According to the Mayor of Pontianak, Pontianak mainland height from 0.2 to 1.2 meters above sea level so most are easily submerged in the wet season and high tide the sea.

So although the drainage well, if the water was high tide Kapuas River, then rain water can not quickly go down and stay on the mainland. "But the phenomenon of Pontianak submerged usually no more than eight hours," said Sutarmidji.
