…it’s bad enough that the faultline exists; but it’s worse when you’re clueless where.

About Stuvwx

This blog was started in 2013; however, it actually began in 2010 but got corrupted and backups of the original helped to restart the present blog. Prior to 2010, i was emailing people Google maps with the fault trace. But it was in 2005 when i assembled my first map. In 1990, i got ahold of a photocopy of a tabloid size, black and white map when the former Phivolcs head, the late Ricardo Punongbayan gave an earthquake awareness seminar after the July 16 earthquake. i put away the map inside a cannister and rediscovered it 15 years later when i was going through my old stuff. Instantly, sirens went off inside my head and took stock of the situation on what i had: Windows in my computer (DOS ruled PCs 15 years earlier), Adobe Photoshop, a powerful image scanner and, most of all, a coffee table book of tiled large maps of Metro Manila. Fancying what i could accomplish with technology and a 15 year old map, i put my competency at work and scanned images and assembled them on my desktop computer. Lo and behold, even after checking the work several times, i got the jolt of my life when i discovered my rented house was actually sitting on top of a fault line! Not long after, i evacuated and resided far from any faultline. At the time, i was probably one of the few (not that i know anyone else) who assembled a map of the fault line. What were the chances that i assemble a fault line map as a weird activity and suddenly find myself and my family at risk and unaware that a silent, deadly fault line ran directly under our house. It was an epiphany! Since then i knew what i had to do, and God brought everything to pass easily and smoothly. However, truth to tell, creating the maps was so nerve-wracking and I could not have done it all if I weren’t a bit of obsessive-compulsive in me. For many months, everyday I had to devote about four hours piecing together up close snapshots of many topographical maps and later google maps to create this blog. I could say i literally spent tens of kilometers after kilometers assembling detailed maps and from the experience, I made many observations that I made posts of. The gratifying moment came when Phivolcs and the NDRRMC maybe through an influential follower of my blog, I suspect, launched a media blitz with campaign to protect the welfare of students whose schools, and many they are, are in the path of fault lines. I knew my work became basis of this and I couldn’t help but feel that i had accomplished at least one of my life’s purpose. i may just be accomplishing God’s will; but then again, maybe not. Only God knows. “There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven.” -Luke 21:11 “At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.” -Revelations 11:13 “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” – Matthew 24:7 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * “Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;” -Psalm 46:2 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    Hi and good afternoon Sir. My home is situated along Duhat Street , Northview II, Filinvest II. I am anywhere n’near’ the fault line please? If so, how many meters (or kilometers) should a house be to be considered on the safe side?

      i can’t find duhat st. but from the corner of acacia and narra sts. in Northview II, Filinvest II is 1.6 kms away from the nearest section of the fault line, which touches the corner of london ave. and katipunan extension just near the river. to be on the safe side, about 10 meters from either side of the fault line. may i also add as a general rule: if the structure above your head is very old or was not designed by a licensed architect and licensed structural or civil engineer, then you are nonetheless VERY MUCH affected as the structural integrity of the house or building may be weak, and the roof and walls can collapse.

        Thank you for your reply.

        However, is 25 meters away from the fault line ‘enough’ to be safe?

        I think that a wider margin of safety should be utilized to minimize the risk involved, however minimal or otherwise. Say , about 1 kilometer from the fault line on either side would ‘at least’ be considered safe.

        What do you think please.

        phivolcs is saying 5 meters from either side of the fault line. but i say, the farther you get the better. i’m sure you’ll agree.

        Thank you from the reminder from PHILVOCS. In this case, the farther you are from the fault line, the better. I was wondering, how sure ar WE of the coordinates of such a FAULT LINE, meaning how sure are we if indeed the fault line is where it really should be? I guess we all have to leave it to fate then.

        Thanks again ….. and thank you for your concern and initiative as well on such an undertaking.

        once i was asked if there was a fault line on a certain property because the architect cautioned the owner to have the land checked. true enough, after i was given the gps coordinates of the property and plugged them in on google earth, i virtually flew to the property in question in nanoseconds and there was a fault line lying in wait where i was told the ground elevation looked suspicious. this and some other personal experiences convinced me the trace faults are accurate.

        Good evening.

        I rest my case.

        Let us all be prepared for the worst case scenario then.

        Better be ready and prepared, rather than sorry and regret later ….. as the saying goes.

        Thanks again for giving us this information.

    My family lives in bagumbong northern part of caloocan…are they safe?

      no fault line runs underneath bagumbong. but still your family may not be safe if their shelter is a death trap, where the roof may cave in or the floors and walls may collapse if the house just wasn’t built with the life-saving technical expertise of a licensed architect or civil or structural engineer. sometimes we pinoys rely on the skills of a master carpenter/mason/electrician all rolled into one capable candidate for a foreman of a construction project. STILL, he may have the experience going for him but then he may be lacking with the technical know-how that can prevent structural collapse during an earthquake and thus save lives. (a bit of shock value there to wake up people’s senses …bagumbong is around 12 km. from the nearest section of the fault line).
