While everyone is afraid of the possibility that a magnitude 7.2 earthquake will hit Metro Manila in the future because of the West Valley fault, Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) released the list of places that could be affected by the said natural phenomenon.

In 2016, PHIVOCS warned the residents of Metro Manila to be ready in case that the West Valley fault started to move that might cause a big earthquake called the “big one”.

PHIVOCS predicted that “Big One” could affect millions of residents in Metro Manila and near provinces.

The West Valley Fault according to Philvocs is moving every 400-600 years and the last time it moved was recorded on 1658 or 357 years ago.

According to a study, the rehabilitation will cost P1.8 to P2.3 trillion.

However, the agency clarified that no technology in the world can predict an earthquake.

“There is no reliable technology in the world that can confidently predict the date, time and location of large earthquakes. What we do is prepare earthquake scenarios of hazards and impacts to be used as a guide for mitigation, preparedness, and response,” Phivolcs said.

Here is the list of the Barangays that located near the fault:
