The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) released the Valley Fault System Atlas (VFS) which is a collection of thorough large-scale maps that demonstrates the areas that are in close proximity to an earthquake fault.
The VFS is composed of two segments:
West Valley Fault – running through Bulacan, Rizal, Metro Manila, Cavite, and Laguna.
PHIVOLCS has beforehand warned about probable impending activity from the West Valley Fault.
“We don’t usually use the word ripe because the fact would indicate that the West Valley Fault can move in our lifetime simply because the last earthquake that happened from this fault, most likely the 1658 earthquake 357 years ago, and the interval of movement of the fault is roughly between 400-600 years. So that’s very close,” said Director Renato Solidum, Director of PHIVOCS.
The magnitude 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal last month might be the same magnitude that the West Valley Fault could possibly generate, but according to research this could be a 7.2 magnitude; while the East Valley Fault could generate a magnitude 6.2 earthquake.
According to approximates based on previous studies conducted by PHIVOLCS in partnership with the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Japan International Cooperation Agency, and Geosciences Australia said that in case of a magnitude 7.2 earthquake from the West Valley the fault, a death toll cannot be avoided – 31,000 to 33,500 people could die. In this particular study, an estimated damage would cost around P1.8 to 2.3 trillion.

high-magnitude earthquakes. This is not
a joke anymore, a series of calamities have been hitting our country and it is
mother nature’s way of showing us that she is real. The question and action there would be how we
are going to deal with it.
