Phivolcs: West Valley fault line ‘ripe for movement’

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology on Wednesday said the Marikina West Valley fault line, one of the active faults in the country, is ripe for movement because it has not moved for 200 years.

Phivolcs said the possibility of a Magnitude 7.2 earthquake is not far-fetched.

A Metro Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study earlier revealed that 7 out of 17 cities in Metro Manila will suffer the most damage and casualties if a massive earthquake occurs at the West Valley fault.

The 7 cities are Marikina, Quezon, Pasig, Makati, Pateros, Taguig and Muntinlupa. – With a report from Ryan Chua, ABS-CBN News : Phivolcs: West Valley fault line ‘ripe for movement’
