Unabated development, others caused Shrine landslide

GEOLOGISTS from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said developments on Shrine Hills, including one that involved the diversion of a waterway, and the excavation done for road widening were among key contributing factors of the landslide along the Diversion Road, in Davao City.

This, aside from the fact that the affected slope bore debris from an old landslide and thus has been unstable long before.
