The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology – Department of Science and Technology (PHIVOLCS-DOST) commemorates the 40th year of the 1976 Moro Gulf Earthquake and Tsunami.

On August 17, 1976 at 12:11 AM (PST), a magnitude-8.1 earthquake generated by the movement along the Cotabato trench hit the island of Mindanao. The earthquake caused damage and collapse of houses and buildings. However, the tsunami that affected 700 kilometers of coastline bordering Moro Gulf in the North Celebes Sea brought the most destruction.

The off-shore earthquake produced a massive tsunami killing about 6000 people making it the most disastrous tsunami to hit the Philippines. People were mostly asleep and were only awakened by the strong shaking. About five minutes after the earthquake, a rumbling sound was heard from the shore, and three to four succeeding waves hit the coastal areas. Some were not able to immediately evacuate to higher grounds.


Waves as high as nine (9) meters struck the town of Lebak in Sultan Kudarat. It inundated almost all coastal towns of provinces bordering Moro Gulf such as Zamboanga Sibugay, Zamboanga Del Sur, Lanao Del Norte, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi Tawi and  cities of Cotabato and Zamboanga.

On the 40th year of the 1976 Moro Gulf Earthquake and Tsunami, PHIVOLCS will be conducting a School Fair at Don Pablo Lorenzo Memorial High School, Zamboanga City on August 18 – 19, 2016. PHIVOLCS-DOST aims to promote geologic hazard awareness and preparedness among the students. Moreover, a seminar-workshop entitled Orientation and Knowledge Sharing for Partner Agencies on Volcano, Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster Preparedness and Risk Reduction: Seminar-Workshop for KBP Partners on the use of Broadcasters’ InfoChart on Emergency Preparedness will be held to capacitate the media on how to effectively disseminate information about earthquake, tsunami and its hazards on August 20, 2016 at LM Metro Hotel, Zamboanga City.

PHIVOLCS encourages everyone to look back and remember not only the tragedy, but also the lessons we learned. Awareness and preparedness would increase our chances against natural hazards and disasters. Through the continuous monitoring, and Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) campaign of PHIVOLCS, let us keep our communities safe from and resilient to volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and other related hazards.

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 http://wovodat.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph). 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

Monday, 13 June 2016 09:12

PHIVOLCS conducted a five-day training entitled "Capacity Enhancement of PHIVOLCS Staffs on Hazard, Risk, and Exposure Database Development through the Use of the REDAS Software" from May 23 – 27, 2016 for PHIVOLCS staffs. The training was held at the Auditorium, PHIVOLCS, Quezon 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 risk assessment.  The training also aims to equip PHIVOLCS staffs with knowledge and skills that can help them facilitate future REDAS trainings.

There was a total of 44 participants during the training. Twenty-five (25) of them are from the SOEPD, 15 from the GGRDD, 3 from VMEPD and one from GDAPD. The participants were provided with REDAS version 2.8Y which was later upgraded to REDAS 2.8Z before the training ended. A total of 39 REDAS software license keys was issued during the said event.
