I admire the work and effort of individuals who are educating the citizens on the earthquake fault line in Metro Manila. After all, everyone will be affected by the tremors of a 7.2 earthquake. One such website, Is your house standing on an earthquake faultline? showcases an overlay of the google map over the Phivolcs map. It lists communities and subdivisions that sits on the fault line in one gigantic stitched map per sector , however the data used here is older than The Valley Fault System Atlas from Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs). Compare the Google Map below with the latest atlas from Phivolcs which you can download here if Phivolcs website is slow.

Another site provides a list of notable barangays, villages and infrastructure that lie exactly on top or within 500-meter radius from the fault line.

There are more links and maps. The author says “there you can find maps on the Marikina Valley faultline that I assembled and tweaked (note: nowhere else will you find these customised maps available) which pinpoint the affected barangays and subdivisions in clear detail, showing even the NAMES OF STREETS and exact location where a major faultline capable of generating a 7.2 magnitude earthquake lurks.” Whether one’s home is a kilometer or more away, it is important to check the structure of their homes through this “House self-check”.
