Hazard mapping needed

What happened to Japan recently was really heart-breaking. But it is something every country must be ready to deal with anytime coz nothing and nobody can predict such occurrence and time is of the essence. In the Philippines, I hope the government will release the hazard mapping so that the people can make the necessary preparations.
The East and West Valley Fault has not been moving for 200 years, according to PHIVOLCS Director Renato Solidum. It runs from Bulacan area, Rodriguez (Quezon City), Marikina Area, Pasig, easternmost Makati, Taguig to Muntinlupa, San Pedro, Biñan to Calamba. Any earthquake is dangerous to any building or property situated on the top of the fault line so I guess the government will prioritize a campaign information about fault lines, drills and preparations.
