Interactive Risk Analysis Map of the Valley Fault System Earthquake



Last June 2013, PHIVOLCS has released a series of risk analysis scenario maps pertaining the West Valley Fault System in case its movement triggers a large earthquake within Metro Manila. These maps provide structural stability analysis of localities that can be affected in case a 6.5M or 7.2M earthquake jolts the metropolis due to the movement of the Valley Fault System that is estimated to be active in every 300 +/- 100 years.

Part 3 of East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition 2015

Day 5 East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition - Schadow1 Expeditions


February 27 - March 5, 2015
After leaving Eastern Mindanao via Surigao Strait for the first four days of our mapping expedition, we have begun to set foot for the first time in this part of Eastern Visayas on San Ricardo, and scoured through the municipalities at the western side of Southern Leyte. It is our fifth day in the expedition and we woke up being embraced by the sun as it rises from the east while slumped on the white sands and turquoise waters around Canigao Island.

February 27 - March 5, 2015
As we continue on our narrative to the East Philippines Mapping Expedition of 2015, we have temporarily left the main island of Mindanao towards the easternmost island of the Philippines. We have already covered 4 of the 13 provinces of the country in our 7-day mapping mission. Primarily covering towns of Philippines where it meets the waves of the Pacific and the wrath of typhoons during typhoon season. This is with a goal in ensuring vulnerable provinces are properly mapped for navigation accuracy in times of disasters while at the same time discovering the beauty of the Philippines.

The Surfing Capital of the Philippines - Cloud 9 Siargao

Cloud 9 Siargao - Schadow1 Expeditions


March 1, 2015
What is a surfer's dream? A white beach with clear turquoise waters, swells well, strong waves but with a long shallow yet pebble smooth shoreline that breaks the strong waves to ripple like number 9 but would give you a smooth landing off board. And so this is every surfers' "cloud 9". In the Philippines a perfect beach for a perfect swell is no where else but in Siargao, the surfing capital of the Philippines.
