(Vdeo) PHIVOLCS, Monitors Possible Magnitude 8 Earthquake after Surigao Del Norte Quake


The PHIVOLCS said that a magnitude eight earthquake could happen after the Surigao Del Norte quake,However, it is also possible that the quakes would not be as strong as magnitude 8,PHIVOLCS urged the people always to be prepared since they cannot predict when will an earthquake happens.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said that they are monitoring a possible magnitude 8 earthquake after the earthquake swarms that happened in Surigao Del Norte last Friday.

We learned that even if PHIVOLCS cannot predict when and where earthquakes will happen, they can still determine its magnitude. "'Yung oras kung kailan mangyayari ang malakas na lindol, hindi masasabi.


Pero puwede nating matantsa kung ano ang magnitude ng bawat fault na puwedeng ipakilos ng lindol,” PHIVOLCS director Renato Solidum said on GMA Network’s Unang Hirit.

Solidum mentioned that when it comes to the trenches, the segment offshore of Surigao provinces could cause a magnitude 8 earthquake. "Ang sinabi namin ang pagdating sa mga trenches, 'yung segment offshore ng Surigao provinces ay may kakayahan magdulot ng magnitude 8 na earthquake. Matagal na po naming sinasabi yan," he said.

"Puwede pong maliliit na lindol lamang at puwedeng dumiretso sa malalaki. "Pero posible din naman na 'yung mga maliliit na paglindol o moderate size na earthquake ay hanggang doon na lamang,” Solidum added.


In a report by the Inquirer (author Christia Marie Ramos), tsunamis would be most likely to occur if the magnitude 8 quake happens.

However, Solidum emphasized that even if they have not yet recorded an earthquake pattern that could lead to a magnitude 8 quake, they are still monitoring the possibility and urge the people to be prepared.

“Although di natin masasabi kung talagang ito’y dederetso sa ganun, sana hindi, ang kadalasan ay tumitigil lang na ganyan lang pero we don’t know so we have to be prepared always,” he said.
