GMA News Online reports that according to Quezon City Public Order and Safety head Elmo San Diego "residents in exclusive communities along the West Valley Fault Line in Quezon City have been advised to move to safer ground."

GMA News Online reports that according to Quezon City Public Order and Safety head Elmo San Diego "residents in exclusive communities along the West Valley Fault Line in Quezon City have been advised to move to safer ground."  The report noted that earthquake awareness was brought up again "following last week’s magnitude-7.6 earthquake in Eastern Visayas."

 

The report went on to quoteradio dzBB’s Allan Gatus, who reported that "the potentially affected areas include 700 houses both in depressed areas and in posh subdivisions, which include White Plains, Green Meadows, and Blue Ridge."

 

According to the report, "San Diego added that while it may be relatively easy to find relocation sites for the informal settlers, it will be hard to convince residents in subdivisions to move." As such, San Diego explained that they "are considering having residents of subdivisions sign waivers to absolve government from liability if they do not move to safer ground and a quake hits."
