It is called Shake Drill to stir the awareness of the public in case a strong earthquake strikes. Held today, June 22, in Metro Manila, it is in preparation for a potential earthquake that my occur in the West Valley fault which is in the eastern part of Metro Manila. There is no way to predict an earthquake yet but seismologists of the volcanology institute say that the big one can occur as early as today or as later as 400 years from now. Isn't that crazy to predict something that can happen within 400 years? Even our grandchildren wouldn't last that long, huh. Some media people say that the proponents of the shake drill just wanted to get attention or maybe they can earn something from that activity since it has a budget provided by the Metro Manila Development Authority. But on a positive note, the drill demonstrated how to act when the earthquake occurs. Especially the children in school, presence of mind is being taught in times of disaster. At least it is somewhat beneficial to the public.
