Guam - A landslide along the Channel 10 area is putting one village mayor on edge. Asan-Maina mayor Joana Margaret Blas tells KUAM, the landslide occurred last month as a result of recent heavy rains and winds.

With 25 residents living in the area, she says she remains concerned for their safety and anyone who makes the trip through the one-way street. "Right now residents I'm just cautioning them to refrain from visitors or anyone going up there or anybody that just wants to go up there to Channel 10 and look at the area. They should refrain from coming in because it's really dangerous. It's like a cliff," she explained.

Blas says she's working with the Department of Public Works, Homeland Security, and the Department of Land Management to resolve the issue and install a border to prevent future landslides.
