MANILA, Philippines- Upang mas mapalawak ang earthquake monitoring sa bansa, itinatag ng Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) ang unang seismic station sa probinsya ng Iloilo.

Sinabi ng Phivolcs nitong Huwebes na ang istasyon ay matatagpuan sa Central Azucarera de San Antonio, Inc. sugarcane plantation, Barangay (village) Ponong Pequeño sa munisipalidad ng Dueñas.

Inilahad din ng Phivolcs na ika-115 na sa bansa ang Iloilo seismic station.

“With the addition of the Dueñas Iloilo Seismic Station (DUIP) to the Philippine Seismic Network, the monitoring capability of the Institute is further enhanced. This allows faster and more accurate issuance of earthquake information to decision-makers, emergency responders, and the general public,” pahayag ng ahensya.

“Furthermore, the improved determination of earthquake parameters and detectability of seismic events will be important inputs for earthquake disaster preparedness and risk reduction,” dagdag pa nito. 

Isasagawa ang onsite inauguration sa Abril 28, alas-8 ng umaga. RNT/SA
