Updated on May 21, 2015
PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) and OCD (Office of Civil Defense) launch Valley Fault System Atlas (VFS Atlas)

With the consolidated mapping activities of PHIVOLCS and efforts by partner-agencies, the Valley Fault System (VFS) Atlas, a handbook of large scale maps showing in detail areas traversed by the Valley Fault System, was finally unveiled on May 18, 2015 at the Institute’s auditorium in University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

The VFS is an active fault system in the Greater Metro Manila Area (GMMA) with two fault traces: the 10 km long East Valley Fault in Rizal and the 100 km long West Valley Fault runs through different cities and towns of Bulacan, Rizal, Metro Manila, Cavite and Laguna. The West Valley Fault can generate a large earthquake which poses threat to people’s lives, buildings and infrastructures, and livelihood. The last known activity along this fault line was the year 1658 and is estimated to be active every 300 years plus or minus 100 years. As of the time of this writing, it has been 357 years ago and is well within the potential period of its movement.

The VFS is composed of two segments: the East Valley Fault running through Rizal, and the West Valley Fault, running through Bulacan, Rizal, Metro Manila, Cavite, and Laguna.

PHIVOLCS has previously warned about possible impending activity from the West Valley Fault.

“We don’t usually use the word ripe because the fact would indicate that the West Valley Fault can move in our lifetime simply because the last earthquake that happened from this fault, most likely the 1658 earthquake 357 years ago, and the interval of movement of the fault is roughly between 400-600 years. So that’s very close,” said Solidum.

The West Valley Fault can generate a magnitude 7.2 earthquake, almost as strong as the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal last month, while the East Valley Fault could generate a magnitude 6.2 earthquake.

Earthquakes cannot be predicted, Office of Civil Defense Usec. Alexander Pama encouraged the public to be a step ahead in anticipating the disaster.
