I was just asking where is the safest place there to live at now. I lived in the Davao area for over a year and had no problems several years ago but now they are having several earthquakes.

I never ask for all this negative response. I was just asking for some advice.

hi Gary D

Yeah I agree with you about the bad weather not happening all the time there just like here in the usa. It seems the weather is getting worse no matter where we live at now. BUT SOME SAY THERE IS NO CLIMATE CHANGE. Go figure.

I am sure the lost souls when Mount Vesuvius erupted 2,000 years ago never saw it coming apart from the occasional grumble.
Simply look at what has recently happened in Oz with the wild fires, some friends lost houses and yes they will rebuild and soldier on.
Calamities are intrinsic within/on our planet/where we have no choice but to live, finding a safe abode? Then the next disaster? We have no control, but push on and prosper. Hopefully.
All countries suffer natures whims.

Cheers, Steve.

We had a small coating of ash here in BGC.
I stayed indoors with the windows closed, just turned off the A/C to stop any damage that the ash might do.

Worst thing for me is that the condo management have decided to close the pool and empty it.

The Philippines is no more safe or unsafe as anywhere else, **** happens. If your residence is built to standard typhoons and earthquakes are not usually a problem unless it's a biggy. The typhoon come in from the east so live on the west side. There's only 3-4 volcanoes that play up occasionally so don't live near one. Earthquakes well not a lot you can do about that. UK actually has 200-300 earthquakes per year.

Phivolcs may lower alert level if Taal Volcano's activity continues to wane

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 16) — State volcanologists are studying the possibility of lowering the alert level of Taal Volcano if its activity continues to decrease.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Taal's activity "generally waned" on Thursday, so they are observing the lull.

Phivolcs Volcano Monitoring and Eruption Prediction Division Chief Mariton Bornas said they are now studying the data for the sake of evacuees who are uncomfortable leaving their homes and staying in evacuation centers.

"Kung maging matagal ang lull, pwedeng babaan ang alert level," she said in a briefing.

She said it's typical for a volcano to enter a lull during a prolonged eruption, adding it doesn't mean a hazardous eruption is no longer possible. Alert Level 4 remains pending Phivolcs' decision.

"Hindi pa rin tinatanggal ang panganib na maaaring pumutok nang malakas. Pero tinitignan na rin natin ngayon ang possibility na mag-lull ng considerable na tagal," she said.

Despite the volcano's calmer exterior, the Phivolcs official warned there is potentially dangerous activity underneath Taal. She said there are fewer volcanic earthquakes but its intensities remain strong. The volcano also continues to emit high amounts of sulfur dioxide. These signal there is movement of magma or molten rocks underneath.

Bornas advised residents to avoid going back to their homes located in the "danger zone" or within a 14-kilometer radius of the volcano’s crater as the threat of a hazardous eruption remains.

"Kami po ang magsasabi kung maaari na pong ibaba ang ating guard. Status quo muna dahil ganoon pa rin ang kalagayan," she said.

Authorities on Thursday gave residents of Talisay, Batangas a few hours to check their homes and valuables amid an order to evacuate the town. Talisay is a low lying area, making it vulnerable to dangerous volcanic explosion.

well, I feel so sorry for the ones that have lost just about everything they had there. What will they do to survive this disaster there. They are already just surviving and now this.

Hope for the best for them.
