PRESS RELEASE: DOST -PHIVOLCS PROMOTES TSUNAMI AWARENESS AND PREPAREDNESS IN METRO MANILA
Tuesday, 30 October 2018 11:05

The Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) will hold a two-day “Tsunami Awareness and Preparedness #HandaAngMayAlam Forum and Exhibit” on November 05 and 06, 2018 at Parañaque Sports and Social Hall, Parañaque City in observance of the World Tsunami Awareness Day.

DOST-PHIVOLCS, in cooperation with DOST-National Capital Region (NCR) and the city government of Parañaque, aims to promote tsunami awareness and disaster risk reduction and management through DOST-PHIVOLCS information products, and utilize these for awareness, preparedness, early warning, and mitigation.

Metro Manila, specifically the cities of Valenzuela, Navotas, Malabon, Manila, Pasay, Las Piñas, and Parañaque, face the threat of tsunami that could be generated from a possible movement of the Manila Trench. There are historical evidences of tsunami in Metro Manila, according to DOST Undersecretary Renato Solidum Jr. and if the same happens now, many people are exposed. It is important to make sure that the people are informed of what can happen so they can prepare.

The activities intend to capacitate the public with the right information to prepare, respond and protect oneself in the event of an earthquake and tsunami.

DOST-PHIVOLCS also encourages everyone to join the Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake and Tsunami Drill on November 05, 2018.  Usec. Solidum says, “DOST-PHIVOLCS hopes that these activities will encourage communities to develop a culture of disaster resilience.”

“PREPARE FOR TSUNAMI,” URGES USEC. SOLIDUM
Tuesday, 30 October 2018 11:01

“We should be aware of all the earthquake hazards that could affect us, and prepare for it, not only the ground shaking caused by large earthquakes, but also other hazards like tsunami,” says Undersecretary Renato Solidum, Jr., officer-in-charge of PHIVOLCS.

The Philippines is vulnerable to tsunami due to the presence of offshore faults and trenches such as Manila Trench, Negros Trench, Sulu Trench, Cotabato Trench, Philippine Trench, and East Luzon Trough. Tsunamis in the Philippines are rare but could be devastating.

In the past, 38 people drowned as a result of a tsunami caused by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake in Mindoro on November 15, 1994. A magnitude 8.1 earthquake on August 17, 1976 generated by the movement along the Cotabato trench produced massive tsunami waves as high as nine meters. Around 8,000 people were killed or missing and it is known as the most disastrous tsunami to hit the Philippines in the last four decades.

Quoting an old Japanese proverb Usec. Solidum reiterates that, “the next disaster strikes after we have forgotten the last one.” It is important we learn from the past experiences so we know how we can prepare in case it happen again in the future.

DOST-PHIVOLCS Tsunami Prone Map shows coastal areas in the Philippines that can be affected by tsunamis generated by under-the-sea earthquakes or submarine landslide. Tsunami waves generated by earthquakes from other countries may affect the country as well.

Usec. Solidum advocates the conduct of community-level awareness about earthquakes and tsunamis focused on natural signs of an approaching local tsunami, warning, and evacuation procedure.

A symposium and exhibit on August 2, 2018 at Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church), Manila will be conducted.

PRESS RELEASE: 50TH COMMEMORATION OF THE 1968 CASIGURAN EARTHQUAKE
Monday, 30 July 2018 17:26

The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) commemorates the 1968 Casiguran Earthquake on its 50th year this August 2, 2018.

A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck the town of Casiguran, Aurora on August 2, 1968 at 4:19 AM (PST). The earthquake caused large fissures with lengths measuring from 10 to 20 meters but in some areas, it reached a length of 400 to 500 meters. Fissures on the road from Casiguran to Barrio Tabas produced a surface subsidence up to two meters. Landslides were observed in the mountainous area near the epicenter and tsunami was recorded according to the observation in tide gauge station in Japan.

Rossi-Forel Earthquake Intensity VII was recorded in Manila in spite of its location being far from the epicenter. The Ruby Tower, a six-storey building in Binondo, Manila, collapsed instantly during the quake killing 268 people. Several buildings such as Aloha Theater, Philippine Bar Association Building, National Library, and Liwayway Hotel in Manila sustained varying levels of structural damages. The 1968 Casiguran Earthquake is said to be one of the most destructive earthquakes in the Philippines.

This event paved the way for the establishment of the National Committee on Disaster Operations (NCDO) under the Administrative Order No. 151 on December 2, 1968. Republic Act 6541, An Act to Ordain and Institute a National Building Code of the Philippines was also enacted in 1972.

On the 50th year of the 1968 Casiguran Earthquake, PHIVOLCS will be conducting a symposium and exhibit on August 2, 2018 at Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church), Manila.

PHIVOLCS encourages everyone to look back and remember not only the tragedy, but also the lessons we learned. Let us keep our communities safe from and resilient to natural hazards and disasters.
