This makes it a priority to know how far you are from the fault line so that you may be able to take the necessary precautions should another quake strike.

Right after the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvocs) revealed detailed maps of the West Valley Fault Line in 2015, web developers Dominic Tuazon, Louis Michael Concepcion, Mic Gutierrez, Kyle Abughanem, and Emmanuel Soriano got straight to work on a one-stop website that would give a person pertinent details on what to do during earthquakes.

Tremors works like your everyday online search engine. The site was launched quickly in 2015 and ll you need to do is plug in an address to check how far you–or a family and friends–are from the fault line. The Team Instigators also added pins for the nearest evacuation center.
