Geospatial Information Management and Analysis Project for Hazards and Risk Assessment in the Philippines The GeoRiskPH Project
Monday, 03 September 2018 12:58

The PHIVOLCS FaultFinder, released in 2016, has revolutionized active fault assessment in the country, providing the public an easy and more user-friendly gateway to accurate active faults information. This year, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) funds another initiative proposed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) to improve hazards and risk assessment.

DOST-PHIVOLCS commenced the project: Geospatial Information Management and Analysis Project for Hazards and Risk Assessment in the Philippines or GeoRiskPH last August 1, 2018. PHIVOLCS is joined by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB), the National Mapping Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), and the Office of Civil Defense (OCD). Together, these agencies endeavor to create standards in the way government data and information necessary for hazards and risk assessment are contributed and retrieved to and from national database systems. Through GeoRiskPH, DOST-PHIVOLCS will develop prototype platforms, tools and methods to initiate efficient generation of information and products for hazard and risk evaluations.

The Project envisions to benefit various government agencies and the public as information on hazards and risks will be provided at the most efficient and convenient ways. Through this approach, information critical to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and climate change initiatives may now be easily accessed by the government and the public. Long-term effect of the project would be the mainstreaming of DRR and climate change information into various related plans.

There are 17 additional project-based researchers, with backgrounds in GIS, IT, Computer Science, Geology and Geography, who are contributing to fast track the work. PHIVOLCS, together with the Technical Working Group from the Collective Strengthening on Community Awareness on Natural Disasters (CSCAND) agencies, will provide the necessary guidance to direct these researchers and ensure sustainability of the GeoRiskPH initiatives.

The Project will collaborate with other government agencies to ensure that the databases that will be developed are robust and that the platforms produced are usable by various stakeholders. DOST intends that more government agencies will be a part of GeoRiskPH in the coming years.

PHIVOLCS Conducts REDAS Training for Sarangani Province
Monday, 20 August 2018 13:00

PHIVOLCS conducted a six-day training entitled “Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction into the Local Development Planning Process, Contingency Planning, and Emergency Preparedness through the Use of the REDAS Software" last August 6 -11, 2018 for the province of Sarangani. The training was held at Sarangani Highlands, General Santos City. The goal of the training was to provide and familiarize the participants with the capability of the REDAS Software, especially the modules which are designed to be used for impact assessment. Speakers and facilitators during the training were Renato U. Solidum, Jr., Bartolome C. Bautista, Maria Leonila P. Bautista, Winchelle Ian G. Sevilla, Angelito G. Lanuza, Dave Andrei Rivera, Jerome E. De Lima, Karen M. Garcia, Lawrence Aaron C. Bañes, John Ted S. Sison, Jan Lawrence A. Lontoc, Chayserie M. Canlas, Clint Drexel M. Ongue, and Ian P. Javier.  The PHIVOLCS Team was also joined by Sharon Juliet M. Arruejo and Bernard R. Punzalan II from PAGASA, and Ariel Austin A. Acosta from Mines and Geosciences Bureau.

There was a total of 38 participants during the training: 7 from the Sarangani PLGUs - PDRRMO (2), PPDO (2), ICT (2), OPAG (1), PENRO (1); 21 from the municipalities of Sarangani - Kiamba (5), Malungon (5), Maitum (3), Malapatan (3), Glan (3), Maasin (1), and Alabel (1); 6 from the NGAs - DPWH (1), DILG (1), DepED (1), NEDA (1), BFP (1), and SPPO (1); and 4 guest participants - General Santos CEO (2), MSU - GenSan (1), and Philippine Red Cross GenSar (1). The participants were provided with REDAS version 2.9e.  A total of 34 REDAS software license keys was issued during the said event. The participants also surveyed 127 buildings during the field work using the Android EDM.

DOST-PHIVOLCS Media Advisory for the upcoming 50th Commemoration of the 1968 Casiguran Earthquake. A symposium and exhibit on August 2, 2018 at Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church), Manila will be conducted. This event will promote geologic hazards awareness and disaster risk reduction and management through DOST-PHIVOLCS information products, and encourage a culture of disaster resilience in the community.

The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) commemorates the 1968 Casiguran Earthquake on its 50th year this August 2, 2018.

A magnitude 7.3 earthquake struck the town of Casiguran, Aurora on August 2, 1968 at 4:19 AM (PST). The earthquake caused large fissures with lengths measuring from 10 to 20 meters but in some areas, it reached a length of 400 to 500 meters. Fissures on the road from Casiguran to Barrio Tabas produced a surface subsidence up to two meters. Landslides were observed in the mountainous area near the epicenter and tsunami was recorded according to the observation in tide gauge station in Japan.

Rossi-Forel Earthquake Intensity VII was recorded in Manila in spite of its location being far from the epicenter. The Ruby Tower, a six-storey building in Binondo, Manila, collapsed instantly during the quake killing 268 people. Several buildings such as Aloha Theater, Philippine Bar Association Building, National Library, and Liwayway Hotel in Manila sustained varying levels of structural damages. The 1968 Casiguran Earthquake is said to be one of the most destructive earthquakes in the Philippines.

This event paved the way for the establishment of the National Committee on Disaster Operations (NCDO) under the Administrative Order No. 151 on December 2, 1968. Republic Act 6541, An Act to Ordain and Institute a National Building Code of the Philippines was also enacted in 1972.

On the 50th year of the 1968 Casiguran Earthquake, PHIVOLCS will be conducting a symposium and exhibit on August 2, 2018 at Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene (Quiapo Church), Manila.

PHIVOLCS encourages everyone to look back and remember not only the tragedy, but also the lessons we learned. Let us keep our communities safe from and resilient to natural hazards and disasters.
