• Parañaque residents urged to join quake drill


    PARAÑAQUE City Mayor Edwin Olivarez has urged the participation of all the city residents in the metro-wide earthquake drill on Thursday, July 30, organized by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) in a bid to make citizens, communities and response agencies earthquake-ready. In a statement, Olivarez said the simulation is important in as much as the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has been repeatedly warning of an impending earthquake of great magnitude it calls “the big one” that may hit the 100-kilometer West Valley Fault System anytime.
