The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) XII conducted various activities in observance of the 18-Day Campaign on Violence Against Women (VAW) with a theme “Filipino Marespeto; Safe Spaces, Kasali Tayo” highlighting the Safe Spaces Act (RA 11313 or SSA) among the public as well as the organizations tasked with enforcing the law.

On November 25, the Gender and Development (GAD) focal of MGB XII, Ermelyn Jane P. Celindro, facilitated the launching of the “Let’s Make this a Safe Space” with the hashtag #SanaAllSpacesSafe ground campaign. All MGB XII personnel committed to make all spaces especially on their workplaces a safe place in all gender-based related violence through a pledge provided by the Philippine Commission for Women (PCW).

In view of the impending Tropical Cyclone Pre-Odette, along with the northeast monsoon and shear line, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau is issuing this Geohazard Advisory for widest dissemination.

GEOHAZARD ADVISORY. Based on 24-Hour Mindanao Weather Forecast from PAGASA issued at 5:00AM of December 13, 2021, Dinagat and Surigao Provinces will have cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to Shear Line. Rest of Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to Localized Thunderstorms. Moderate to strong winds from the northeast to north will prevail over the eastern section of Mindanao with moderate to rough seas. Elsewhere, light to moderate winds from northeast to north with slight to moderate seas. This inclement weather may trigger landslides in elevated and mountainous areas and wide-spread flooding along low-lying areas adjacent to river systems of the northern portion of Mindanao River Basin particularly Libungan River System and Rio Grande de Mindanao River System may bring floods downstream possibly affecting the municipalities of Libungan, Alamada, Banisilan, Carmen, Pikit, Kabacan, Midsayap, Arakan, Antipas, Pigcawayan, and President Roxas, Province of Cotabato.
This Office encourages the Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Offices (LDRRMOs) in the region to refer to the MGB-XII geohazard maps and information in identifying safe areas for evacuation and appropriate evacuation routes. Utilization of these maps and data to properly inform residents living in geologically hazardous areas to take precautionary measures is highly encouraged.
If you need more information and assistance on this matter, please feel free to contact us through our telephone numbers (083) 228-6130 or 228-6131.
