Not much of a way to tell where the ground will give way. All in all it adds up to disaster to those living there...
Gene, when we get serious where to live (Freeport/Subic), is there flood zones that are mapped, or common sense, or you have to ask-research for the history of flooding before you relocate there? Thanks Jerry and Vilma
