Misamis Oriental Provincial Risk Reduction Management Council recorded two incidents of landslide across Misamis Oriental as Tropical Depression Auring intensifies in the region.

According to a report from Sun.Star Superbalita, signal number 1 was raised in Misamis Oriental on January 9, Monday where school classes were canceled.

Due to the incessant heavy rains poured down in the province, lands were softened that resulted to a landslide, Misamis Oriental Provincial Risk Reduction Management Council Officer-in-Charge Fernando Vincent Dy Jr. affirmed.

As of now, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA) has lifted the tropical cyclone signal.

Dy said that the residents of Barangay Mahayahay, Magsaysay, Misamis Oriental which were affected by the incident no longer have electricity due to the fallen electric post on Sunday, January 8.

The other landslide occurred at Puntagorda, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental, Dy said that the road in the said area is still passable despite the landslide.

Dy urges the public to report any incidents concerning the continuous rainfall in the province.

Meanwhile, another low pressure was detected and is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility.
