                    [Title] => PINOY RESEARCHER’S STUDY SAYS: Predicting rainfall-induced landslides may be possible
                    [Summary] => 





A major landslide buried an entire village in Leyte following heavy rains early last year. Some 2,000 people lost their lives and houses were swamped by the flow of mud. Around the world, landslides kill thousands of people each year and cause extensive property damage or loss, especially in heavily populated mountainous regions.


Recent studies, however, indicate that it may actually be possible for rainfall-induced failures to be predicted by carefully monitoring changes in soil moisture content and deformations at specific areas within the slope.
