As part of Quiapo Church’s efforts to raise public awareness and preparedness for a large-scale earthquake in the metro, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s MOBILE EARTHQUAKE SIMULATOR visited Quiapo Church. The earthquake simulation was held yesterday, June 15, 8:00 in the morning until 12:00 noon at Plaza Miranda.

 

The parishioners, volunteers, vendors, policemen, students, teachers, Quiapo Church staff and even foreign tourists experienced the actual simulation of an earthquake of magnitude 7 and above. This activity somehow gave a better understanding on the risks involved when a massive quake occurs and how to properly react in the event of an actual tremor.

Complete with tables and chairs arranged in a dining room setup, the device is able to replicate a large scale shaking. Obtaining this simple familiarity would help the people allay their fear when an earthquake happens.
