Is the Big One coming?
Humans and dogs prepare for major tremors
Located in the “Pacific Ring of Fire”, the Philippines is prone to earthquakes. Seismically active, it experiences a lot of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, not to mention typhoons originating in the Pacific Ocean. Recently, an earthquake with a 5.1 magnitude hit Surigao City. Another earthquake, this time of a 5.5 magnitude, hit Mindoro as well, according to Volcanodiscovery.com. In anticipation of the “Big One”, Filipinos continue to hold earthquake drills -- but is this enough?
