A state of calamity was declared in the Province of Batangas after several earthquakes as high as 5.9 magnitude was felt in the province last couple of days ago. Roads, buildings and other properties in Batangas were damaged by the tremors as well as several landslides that also happened. As it was also felt around Metro Manila and some parts of Luzon. After shocks made people from Batangas as well as neighboring Cities and Provinces worried about  the possible next big earthquake that might happen especially in Metro Manila because of the presence of faults.

Although earthquake drills have already been in place continuously around the different sectors in Metro Manila. Preparation has not only been in terms of drills but also in utilizing the equipment that might be important in an unexpected event like this. Warning or alarm system must also be put in place. Speakers like these must also be purchased.

This is not only the job of the government but also of the people especially those living in near the faultline area.
