In the San Miguelito community of Bosque de Las Cibeles, residents say they are waiting for a landslide they say is inevitable that will damage their homes.

The inhabitants of the area have been complaining about the problems for months. Just last week, a landslide damaged a home close to the area.

However, to date they have not receive a response from any government agency.

Javier Lange, one of the affected residents, said that it is "regrettable" that the entities are delaying action on a problem that threatens the lives of residents.

"We feel abandoned. It seems that everyone expects someone else to act," he said.

Lange has lived in the community for 10 years, along with his wife and two children. On one side of his home is a retaining wall filled with cracks.

He said he can't afford to leave, so he is stuck waiting for either a disaster or government action.

San Miguelito Municipal Engineer Ricardo Sánchez reported that a plan is being developed, and the matter is a priority due to landslides that were reported last week.

According to Sánchez, once the plan is finished, it must be put forth for funding.

The developer of the project is facing an investigation over the issues. That investigation is nearing completion.

"Our suggestion is to stop building homes on sites prone to disasters, such as landslides or floods," Sánchez said.
