Rappler Talk: Earthquakes and hazards in the Philippines
Bookmark to watch on Saturday, August 9, at 4PM
The Luzon earthquake, in particular, is of interest to geologists because it was generated by a previously unknown fault, with a magnitude that should not have produced such a degree of damage. At least 18 people died, 256 were injured, and about 739 structures or buildings sustained damage following the earthquake.
What's so deadly about earthquakes, and how vulnerable is the country to them? Rappler speaks with Dr Mario Aurelio, a geologist, professor, and director of the National Institute of Geological Sciences at the University of the Philippines Diliman to discuss earthquakes and hazards in the Philippines. – Rappler.com
