PHIVOLCS now launches PHIVOLCS-LAVA (Local Active Volcanoes Archive), a web-accessible database that hosts PHIVOLCS’ volcanological data for Mayon Volcano with website address at PHIVOLCS-LAVA builds upon the global standard set down by WOVODat, the Worldwide Organization of Volcano Observatories Database. Developed by the Earth Observatory of Singapore, the WOVODat schema was adopted by PHIVOLCS in 2012 and customized by its Volcano Database and Management Section to fit local data requirements and processes. PHIVOLCS-LAVA is currently set to provide public access to the first tranche of its data and contribute this seamlessly to the WOVODat online database. PHIVOLCS works hand in hand with EOS as its pioneering partner in implementing the WOVODat schema in order to pave the way for the implementation of a global standard in volcano monitoring database development.

Stakeholder's Notice

As the agency mandated to monitor and study earthquakes, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) encourages everyone to participate in the 2nd quarter National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) and the 2nd annual Metro Manila Shake Drill on June 22 at 9 in the morning. PHIVOLCS pushes for the continued promotion of Earthquake awareness and preparedness since it introduced the conduct of earthquake drills in schools way back 2002.

In Quezon City Main Office, PHIVOLCS will participate in the Earthquake Drill to show its support to the Pagyanig 2016 and MM Shake Drill, and to encourage everyone not only to join the drill but also to increase their knowledge about Earthquakes, their hazards and how to prepare for them.

The Earthquake Drill will simulate a Magnitude 7.2 earthquake from the West Valley Fault. At 9:00 AM, radio stations will be sounding the earthquake alert which will signal the start of the drill. Participants would do the duck, cover, and hold technique and will evacuate to the designated evacuation areas. Possible earthquake scenarios will be staged to show and test the disaster response plan such as the National Disaster Response Plan and the Oplan Metro Yakal Plus.‪ #‎Pagyanig‬ ‪#‎MMShakeDrill
