Phivolcs: Earthquakes still can't be predicted


MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) on Thursday warned the public not to fall for circulating predictions on the location and time of earthquakes.

The state seismology bureau  pointed out that there is still no technology anywhere in the world that can predict where and when earthquakes will striuke


“Wala pang teknolohiya sa buong mundo ang makapagsasabi kung kailan at saan mangyayari ang malakas na lindol,” Phivolcs said.


(There is still no technology in the world that can predict when and where powerful earthquakes will occur.)

Phivolcs likewise asked the public not to share information that may cause alarm or confusion.

“Huwag magpadala o mag-forward ng anumang impormasyon na maaaring magdulot ng pagkatakot o pagkalito sa mga makakabasa nito,” it added.

(Do not send or forward information that may cause fear or confusion to those who may read it.)

Phivolcs also stressed  the importance of preparedness should major earthquakes strike.

“Importanteng magkaroon ng tamang kaalaman at sapat na paghahanda upang maging ligtas sa panganib ng malakas na lindol,”  Phivolcs said.


(It’s important to have the correct knowledge and ample preparedness to be safe from the dangers of strong earthquakes.)
