Earthquakes 2017


Trembling Underground in the Philippines

 

Earthquakes 2017

The Philippines are within the "Pacific Ring of Fire". Three tectonic plates meet in the Philippines' underground.

The movements of these 3 tectonic plates are the reason for the very frequent earthquakes in the Philippines.

We count 3 to 5 earthquakes per day. Most of them are weak and nobody feels them.

But zero to three times per year a strong to devastating earthquake shakes our islands. The last extreme earthquake happened on October 15, 2013 in Bohol. This magnitude 7.2 earthquake and the more than 300 aftershocks destroyed many houses, churches, roads and bridges.

And the earth continues to shake in Bohol. Up to now (February 4, 2017), we count 1 to 3 weak aftershocks per day in the vicinity of Tagbilaran.

The interactive map shows all the earthquakes of this year up to an hour ago. You may zoom-in the map to see where precisely the center of an earthquake has been. When you move over the small colored square, an info window displays further information such as time, depth and magnitude.
