Living after After Ondoy

 Now it's the WVFS

When the  Intensity 9  Fukushima  Earthquake devastated Japan, my partner and I became concerned - what do we do? Will we move our residence again? The reason? Our  place  right now sits on top of the West Valley Fault System (WVFS).

WVFS is an earthquake fault system that  traverses primarily  Quezon City, Marikina, and Pasig.  The system affects many subdivisions, including Loyola Grand Villas, then  proceeds southwest to Baranggay Barangka, moves southwards to Valle Verde.

"From Barangka, the fault follows the base of Eastern Q.C. high lands and gradually becomes less distinct".

We are concerned. Afraid,  yes. I have been  trying hard to contain the fear, unceasingly praying  that nothing devastating ever happens. Best of all, we are trying to prepare for the worst.

But to think that we're just recuperating from Ondoy.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
