“Yung fault na gumalaw ay nag-release na ng enerhiya na napakalakas 7.2 pambihira po na ganon kalakas at di ganong kahabaan ay mag-gegenerate pa ng magnitude 8. Hindi tayo umaasa na magnitude 8 sa lugar na yan, imposible.” — PHIVOLCS Director Renato Solidum (UNTV News)

“Yung fault na gumalaw ay nag-release na ng enerhiya na napakalakas 7.2. Pambihira po na ganon kalakas at di ganong kahabaan ay mag-gegenerate pa ng magnitude 8. Hindi tayo umaasa na magnitude 8 sa lugar na yan, imposible.” — PHIVOLCS Director Renato Solidum (UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines — Pinawi ng Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) ang pangamba ng publiko hinggil sa mga balitang may malakas pang lindol na mangyayari sa Bohol.

Ayon kay PHIVOLCS Director Renato Solidum, imposible na itong mangyari dahil nakapaglabas na ng enerhiya ang fault na gumalaw noong Oktubre 15.

“Yung fault na gumalaw ay nag-release na ng enerhiya na napakalakas 7.2. Pambihira po na ganon kalakas at di ganong kahabaan ay mag-gegenerate pa ng magnitude 8. Hindi tayo umaasa na magnitude 8 sa lugar na yan, imposible.”

Pinabulaanan rin nito na may namumuong buklan sa lalawigan tulad ng ikinatatakot ng marami dahil sa paglabas ng tubig na amoy asupre.

Maliban sa East Bohol fault, marami pang mga local fault sa lalawigan na nagiging dahilan ng mga paglindol ngunit hanggang sa ngayon ay walang pang bulkan na natatagpuan sa Bohol.

“Sa pagitan ng sand grain ay lumalabas yan kaya magkakaroon ka ng fountain of water and even mud at may kasamang gas, hindi po yun bulkan, normal po yun sa lindol, liquefaction po ang tawag at sanhi ng bitak,” pahayag pa ni Solidum.

Idinagdag pa ng opisyal na mababawasan na rin ang mga aftershock kumpara noong nakaraang linggo.

Samantala, pinag-iingat ni Solidum ang mga residente sa pagpasok sa mga delikadong lugar tulad ng mga building na may crack at maging sa mga matataas na lugar. (Lea Ylagan / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)
