Is the Philippines Ready for a Killer Earthquake?

Massive earthquakes that devastated New Zealand and Japan have brought fear to the world, including the Philippines, a nation right smack in the “Pacific Ring of Fire.”

Amid the panic and the confusion, one question needs to be answered: Are Filipinos prepared to face a killer earthquake in the country?
This Thursday (Mar 24) on “Krusada,” veteran broadcast journalist Noli “Kabayan” De Castro will lead the way in preparing Filipinos for disaster in the Philippines.

Join him as he flies above the nation to spot “danger zones” or areas that lie over fault lines. Kabayan will also visit condemned buildings and infrastructures that are prone to destruction during earthquakes.

Find out the best ways to prepare for earthquakes from experts from PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology), DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways) and NDCC (National Disaster Coordinating Council.

Seventy-five people were killed while 300 are still missing after the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand last February. In Japan, the number of victims continues to pile up in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country this month.

It has been over two decades since the last great earthquake happened in the Philippines in 1990. But have these events prepared Filipinos enough for the dangers that are still to come?

Listen, take part, and be one in Noli De Castro’s first campaign in “Krusada,” this Thursday (Mar 24), after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN. Because it takes more than words to make a stand.

  8. The Philippines has been devastated by events that is stronger than earthquakes, political conspiracies, corruption, prejudices, immoral judgements, and issues which shook the individuality of every citizen in this nation, more than that I think is nothing to each and every one of us, we’ve been through the strongest of typhoons, flash floods,yet, here we are standing still amidst the threat of natural calamities, smiling, for that, we are more than ready over anything that can cease our existence, so let us raise our flag up high with honor and gratitude that we are filipinos, who in one way or another can stand up to anything! 🙂
