Rains trigger landslide along Kennon Road in Benguet

Heavy rains in the last several days triggered a landslide along Kennon Road in Benguet province Thursday afternoon. Radio dzBB early Friday said no one was initially reported injured in the landslide, which took place at about 3 p.m. near Camps 4 and 5. Local officials sent crews to clean up the road. Kennon Road is one of the major thoroughfares leading to Baguio City, the country's summer capital. Rains had been falling on parts of Northern Luzon this week, with the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) attributing this to a cold front. In its bulletin posted early Friday, PAGASA said the cold front in Northern Luzon was interacting with a low-pressure area off Zambales. — LBG/RSJ, GMANews.TV
