Concrete road caves in
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
A portion of the concrete road leading to the geothermal power plants in Sitio Ticala, Barangay Caidiocan in Valencia town, Negros Oriental, slipped yesterday morning while landslips were also reported in the area after continuous rains of the past days.
Two days earlier the dilapidated and abandoned barangay hall of Puhagan, also in Valencia, fell several hundred meters down the slope in a landslide Wednesday evening.
Caidiocan barangay captain Antonio Tuting said that at around 6 a.m. yesterday, two minor landslides or landslips had been observed, followed by ground movement that caused a portion of the road to slip at 9:20 a.m.
