The recent earthquakes that have struck various areas in the country have undeniably alarmed the people.
Moreover, the so-called ‘Big One’ which could possibly hit the metro Manila and the nearby provinces have also sparked news reports and elicited various reactions from the people.
Based on a previous news report, The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has already confirmed that the ‘Big One’ might strike anytime. It is due to the irregular movements of west valley fault according to Phivolcs.
According to the report, the Phivolcs now are observing two major faults in the country. A big part of Luzon will be affected by an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 in case the faults would make movements.
