Nabas MDRRMO responded to a landslide incident at Tagororoc, Nabas, Aklan

At 0815H of September 17, 2021, Nabas MDRRMO received a call from Punong barangay Lendy P. Cahilig of Barangay Tagororoc, Nabas, Aklan informing us of a Rain - induced landslide incident incurred at Sitio Suli of the same barangay covering the entire road making the said area non – passable to any types of vehicle.

Nabas MDRRMO elements, upon receipt of report immediately acted on the situation by proceeding to the said area at around 0821H of the same date headed by LDRRMO II Mr. Reynard Madrazo Dela Cruz together with his colleagues. Upon arrival, they noticed a huge pile of soil with rocks occupying the entire barangay road. Barangay officials and elements such as Tanod and Volunteers start to clear the debris. I talked and coordinated with Punong Barangay and ask permission to join the clearing operation.

To make solution, LDRRMO II Mr. Reynard Madrazo Dela Cruz called Mayor James V. Solanoy and reported the incident and it’s damaged. He also requested for the provision of a pay loader. Nabas MDRRMO has brought shovels, ropes, axe and chainsaw to clear the debris while waiting for the equipment. At around 1015H, the equipment started to clear the area and ended at around 1153H. We are the one clearing the area that pay loader was not able to clear.

They left the area at 1158H with clear picture of the landslide area. No other related accidents incurred. No damaged to properties and casualty. There are some small trees uprooted but upon assessment, it has no value yet.
