Preparing for The Big One As early as 2004, the Metropolitan Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study (MMEIRS) had projected that a "big earthquake...unlike any tragedy seen or imagined in Metro Manila" was imminent after research indicated that "active phases of the (West) Valley Faults are approaching and that the estimated magnitude will be around 7 or more." http://tinyurl.com/d86jzz8

W hat if a 9.0-magnitude quake hits the NCR and the four dams and the Balara reservoir and their aqueducts all suffer massive structural damages and all of their waters are released violently -- just as a tsunami rolls in from the nearby Manila Bay? And what if the waters generated by the tsunami, when they recede to the Manila Bay, carry also the waters of Laguna de Bay and the waters from the four dams and one reservoir? Will it will be like three floods combining to form one big catastrophic event -- the "mother of all tsunamis"? (The shocking scenario involves the Laguna de Bay, the NCR's inland, and the Philippines' biggest, lake, as stated in Part II of this series, forming a single body of water with Manila Bay.) http://tinyurl.com/75hklg4

Apocalyptic scenarios Should a 7.2-magnitude quake slam Metro Manila, the PSA report listed these apocalyptic scenarios aside from the unimaginable number of fatalities that such a tremor would bring:

? At least 117,000 homes would either collapse or suffer heavy damage, rendering 1.2 million people homeless.
? A fourth of public facilities?hospitals, schools, fire houses and police stations ?would suffer damage.
? Damage to water reservoirs and purification plants would immediately cut 4,000 water supply points.
? At least 30 kilometers of electric cables cut, removing the supply of power instantly across the metropolis.
? At least 100 km of telecommunications cables cut, suspending services ?for several weeks if not longer.?
? Closure of airports, damage to major ports and cargo handling infrastructure.
? Closure of roads and damage to nine bridges and a government not functioning because of damage to its offices and facilities.
?While earthquakes are a global and natural phenomena that can hit any city without warning, there are both openly declared and unspoken reasons why Metro Manila ? is particularly vulnerable,? the PSA report said. http://tinyurl.com/5s2duzc
