List of Subdivisions, Villages Under West Valley Fault

It is a well-chronicled fact that the Philippines lies on what is called the Pacific Ring of Fire, a geologic locations where most earthquakes on Earth take place. However, less is known about which specific areas lie directly along the West Valley Fault and East Valley Fault in Greater Metro Manila.

With the intention of making people aware rather than drive scared folks out of their minds, Rappler compiled this list along with map locations on these subdivisions and villages the fault line is defined.

Studies show that residential buildings will suffer the most damage during a 7.2-magnitude earthquake because many of them do not follow building standards. So if you happen to live within the defined areas listed below, take extra precaution to ensure safety in case the so-called the Big One will ever happen.

“Everyone must learn from the recent effects of the magnitude 6.7 earthquake in Surigao del Norte. If a similar event happens in a highly urbanized area, the effects can be more devastating,” Phivolcs director Renato Solidum warned.
