…it’s bad enough that the faultline exists; but it’s worse when you’re clueless where.
hi, i am from davao city. my youngest daughter is graduating in high school and if admitted, she plans to study in either ateneo de manila or U.P. if it’s ADM for her, will she be safe staying in the campus dormitory? we also bought a condo in ortigas right next door to edsa shangrila. will it be safe staying there. please oh please help us by sharing your most valued inputs. thank you so much for your blog.

more than the dormitory or condo where your daughter will be staying is the question of how far from or near the faultline these universities are? for these are the data that i share. as regards the aspect of safety, the structural integrity of specific condos and dormitories is certified by the office of the civil engineer from the municipal or city halls that issued the building permit for their construction. our assurance of safety rests with the amount of faith we have on our public servants.
as much as there is no 100% certainty of what will happen coming from expert advices, it will nonetheless be wise for us to understand and ACT on the critical data gathered by a government-recognized study in the event when –not if— the marikina valley faultline system generate a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
