Do you think the 40-meter No-Build zone from the shoreline should be implemented in Biliran Island? In our time, typhoons have become stronger. Last year Yolanda struck us, and now the Super Typhoon Neoguri (Florita) is threatening Japan.
If the 40 meters no build zone will be implemented in Biliran, thousands of Biliranons living along the coastal barangays will be rendered homeless. A 40-meters no build zone marker is shown in Brgy. Santo Niño, Naval.
Comments from Biliran Island Facebook Fan Page
Dave Hughes: No ……..to many people including myself already have spent allot of money building a family home on the water or on the shoreline. What needs to be done is simple. EVERY shoreline Brgy needs to have 1 solid cement building with solar power and rain water tanks that will shelter all persons living in areas that will be affected by the typhoon, The Mayor then needs to ensure all person are evacuated to the safe house many hours before the storm hits the Island.
Nibie Rosendal: For the sake of safetiness, YES!!
But let us also consider those family who already lived near shorelines from their existence. It would probably hard for them. Their livelihood as well. Whats appropriate here i think is an intensified info and alertness campaign from the LGUs on what to do if this deadly catastrophies happened.
SP Charlie Chan: If you look at the Map of Biliran it is basically surrounded by Samar and Leyte
Im referring to the possibility of storm surge that is very slim to happen here so im not sure whether that 40 meters would really be necessary
