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”.
