 2015 Fault Trace vs. 2010 Fault Trace


Full-Length2_2010-2015_Fault

Though with slight differences, the maps are generally the same. However…

At close inspection, the 2015 fault trace generated from Phivolcs’ Valley Fault System (VFS) Atlas deviates from the 2010 fault trace at most minute points. This means structures thought to be sitting atop a fault line may not be sitting there at all, and those next to or thought lucky to be spared from being on a fault line may turn out to be lying on the fault surprisingly. With the 2015 fault trace, it would seem that new fault lines appear while some of the old ones disappear –drastically changing lives. Yet the simple explanation is, plotted points shift thus making the faults move several meters away from their previous locations.
Sample Trace Shift
Because the difference between the old and new fault traces are very significant, and that the 2015 fault trace has superceded the 2010 fault trace in use, this is seen as a precedent wherein an official fault trace can still be replaced by a newer fault trace, bringing with it the problems associated with a rogue, “wandering” fault line. While this casts doubt on the finality of the 2015 fault trace, meaning in the future there may be an update that shows a different, divergent fault trace that again changes the ball game, people are also realizing that plotting and pinpointing fault traces is not an exact science and to a certain extent, it is informed guesswork. On the macro level, the accuracy of fault traces are still better than good –to the credit of the laudable men and women of Phivolcs who try hard to give the public credible information; it is on the micro level, however, where accuracy matters that spell the difference between life and death, but where today’s technology is sadly lacking.
In light of this reality, people who are affected, or potentially affected, by either the 2015 fault trace or the 2010 fault trace should familiarize themselves with the information provided by the other fault trace to get a holistic assessment of their situation before deciding based on what their intellect or gut feel tells them.

    Thank God I came across this site! Nakakatakot but knowing is half the battle sabi nga. So I just had to look through your maps and read even the old articles that are very informational.

    Our house is in Dao Street, Northview 2 Subdivision, Batasan Hills. Now I don’t know if we should move out and find another place to stay. It doesn’t look like it’s on top of the fault line based on your map but its quite close (my estimate is around 100m) from the nearest one which crosses the Batasan-SanMateo Road and passes along Gold/Copper Street.

    Can I ask po, if you have the info, what is the margin of error ng location ng fault lines sa map? Baka kasi it’s actually closer to our house than what it looks like from the map. I read about the 5m clearance but I agree with you in one of your older posts (I hope I got it correctly) that this is not enough.

    Salamat po for all your efforts in putting all these info together in your website. God bless us all!

I’m just quite worried because the ground below us seems to be receding and the walls have small cracks on them that wasn’t there around 2-3years ago..

      remember earthquakes don’t kill; collapsing structures do. rather than spending time and energy worrying about when the big one will happen, focus on the roof above your head and visually inspect how strong, or weak, you’re house is. structurally stable houses and buildings are usually constructed with the expertise and services of a licensed architect and civil or structural engineer. for starters, try to get in touch with one of these professionals and get their assessment of how safe you are in your house should an earthquake hit.
