Guam - Piti mayor Ben Gumataotao says he is concerned about land in the Nimitz Hill area that is obviously caving in. Several homes sit at the edge of the hillside property.Gumataotao says the issue is that the heavy rain is causing the land to erode, and he is concerned that it may result in the homes collapsing.

He says he will be working with the Department of Public Works in hopes to fix the issue soon, telling KUAM News, "From there on after, they will work together with the EPA, the federal government. They're normally the one who can come up with the funding and they'll take good care of that. I trust that Senator [Joanne] Brown will do it. She's a hard working woman and I know she will accomplish everything we need."

Gumataotao adds he fears the homes in the Nimitz Estates below the eroding cliffline will too be negatively impacted.
