    Mendana, an engineer, said some of the town’s islands are now “flooded during high tide by 1.4 meters,” while some islands are now “fully flooded during high tide,” a phenomenon he attributed to the “upliftment” of some land areas in Maribojoc and Loon towns, and the “subsidence” in the land elevation here after the tremor.

    In Punta Cruz, Maribojoc, sources from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau noted the “upliftment” of the coastal area there by at least 1.5 meter, drying up what used to be a seabed with shellfish and corals.

    “Now we have to walk some 100 meters to reach the sea, and we now get direct to the dive site,” Punta Cruz barangay chairperson and resort operator Lourdes Endo said in an interview. “I miss the waters around here.”

    Since the seawater near the shore is gone, “shellfish gathering” has become a thing of the past in that part of Bohol, Maribojoc executive chief of staff Oscar Valles, told Beck’s team in a briefing Dec. 9 at the town hall.
