The Honorable Secretary Mario G. Montejo of DOST visited recently the municipality of St. Bernard, So. Leyte to personally assess the damage of the recent landslides induced by heavy rains in one barangay of the municipality.

Part of the trip was the installation of a device to monitor land movements which could possibly detect potential landslides. This gadget will be able to help the LGU mitigate if not prevent catastrophic damage brought by an avalanche.
