Tsunami alert up over 19 PHL provinces after Japan quake

Post by Digitap on Fri Mar 11, 2011 7:05 pm

UPDATED 5:40 p.m. - State seismologists raised a tsunami alert over at least 19 areas in the Philippines on Friday afternoon after a magnitude-8.9 quake hit Japan, the biggest to hit that country in seven years.

19 Philippine provinces are facing the threat of tsunami, in red below:



The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) raised Tsunami Alert Level 2, warning of possible waves reaching Philippine shores between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m.

The Phivolcs advised the public to be on alert for unusual waves, which may be as high as one meter.

Malacañang on Friday ordered the mandatory evacuation of the residents living 10 to 40 meters from the shoreline of Batanes, Cagayan, Ilocos, Isabela and 15 other provinces.

At a press briefing in Malacañang on Friday, presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said based on the alert level 2 raised by the Phivolcs, a one-meter high tsunami is expected to hit the 19 provinces around 5:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m.

He said alert level 2 means a mandatory evacuation of the residents near the shoreline.

Lacierda said President Benigno Simeon Aquino III is urging all the affected residents to cooperate with authorities for their own safety.

"Mahalaga po ito, nakikiusap kami sa mga kababayan na lumikas na. May sapat pa pong panahon all the local government officials have been notified," he said.

He added Aquino has been receiving updates from the authorities here in the country.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake occurred at 1:46 p.m. near the east coast of Honshu, Japan.

Phivolcs director Renato Solidum Jr. said in an interview on dzBB radio the areas in the eastern coastline include:

# Batanes Islands
# Cagayan
# Ilocos Norte
# Isabela
# Quezon
# Aurora
# Camarines Norte
# Camarines Sur
# Albay
# Catanduanes
# Sorsogon
# Northern Samar
# Eastern Samar
# Leyte
# Northern Leyte
# Surigao del Norte
# Surigao del Sur
# Davao Oriental
# Davao del Sur

Police to monitor coastal areas

The national command of the Philippine National Police (PNP) has ordered the regional directors in 19 provinces to send policemen out to monitor the coastal areas and help the local governments and local disaster management council with any manpower and assistance they can provide.

The local PNP in the provinces were instructed to update the PNP national every three hours.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development has alerted its regional directors to aid in mobilizing stockpiles of supplies and personnel for possible relief efforts.

The Department of Interior and Local Government has instructed the local disaster management councils to convene the PNP and Bureau of Fire Protection to coordinate with local councils.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is now closely monitoring the situation of the Filipinos in Japan. The DFA hotline for Japan-related concerns is (632) 843-4646.

Aquino has ordered the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo and consulate in Osaka to render all possible assistance to all affected Filipinos.

Biggest quake in seven years

The USGS estimated the epicenter at 130 kilometers (km) east of Sendai, Honshu; 178 km east of Yamagata, Honshu; 178 km east-northeast of Fukushima, Honshu; or 373 km northeast of Tokyo.

According to a report of Reuters, the USGS said the quake struck off-shore 81 miles (130 kms) east of Sendai in Honshu at a depth of 15.2 miles (24 kms).

The USGS earlier reported a 7.9 magnitude for the quake. However, the USGS revised its report to state that it was a magnitude-8.9 quake.

hahaha wag ka nang magselos pyro wala ka ding magagawa. Very Happy magpasalamat na lang tayo na hindi grabe ang naging epekto dito sa ating bansa ang trahedya iyon.

prayer campaign na lang tayo. ipagdasal natin ang ating mga kapatid na pumanaw at mga nakaligtas sa bansang japan, na makaahon agad sa pait na dulot ng masalamuot na trahedya.
