MGB-6 Emphasises Utilisation of Geohazard Maps

Since the information provided in geohazard maps shows the level of susceptibility of an area to hazards such as flooding and landslides, they should be used by local government officials, according to the Mines and Geosciences Bureau-6, Phillippines. Leo Van Juguan, regional director of MGB-6, repeated his call for all local chief executives to use the geohazard maps given to them in 2010 to prepare their people and prevent loss of life.
