As we observed in fast days, an earthquake swarm has been affecting various towns in the province of Batangas.
Seismologists at the Philvolcs reportedly have recorded over 1,000 aftershocks, including last Saturday’s four “moderately sized” tremors.
At the onset, as usual, among the very first responders at the scene were volunteers from the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). This spirit of volunteerism is what PRC hopes to awaken in the Philippines which is ranked 3rd most disaster-prone country worldwide, according to the 2016 World Risk Index.
