Being under constant threats
of sea erosion especially during the rainy season, residents of the seaport city of Buchanan have been once again warned to beware and relocate dwellings very near the sea.
“As you all are aware, the rainy season is here, and there is a potential risk of erosion in Buchanan city. We also like to ask the citizens to be aware, keep on the alert…those who are in areas that are vulnerable to sea erosion…I plead with them to perhaps move from those areas temporarily,” Sen. Gbezongar M. Findley has warned Tuesday.
Senate President Pro-Tempore Findley acknowledged that though residents of these areas are mostly fishermen who survive on coastal territories, “their temporary relocation would be prudent until the sea erosion problem is firmly addressed”.
He said, as lawmakers, they have adequately informed higher authorities to ensure that timely action is taken in addressing the problem of sea erosion, which constantly affects Buchanan and other coastal cities.
Perennial erosions in Buchanan induced by the Atlantic Ocean have destroyed several homes and displaced hundreds of residents living adjacent to the sea.
