Watch Here: Videos of 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake in Mexico

In the wake of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that devastated Mexico City just recently, have you ever wondered what will happen if the anticipated "big one" will hit the Philippines as PHIVOLCS predicted?              Watching the footages from the recent quake that put Mexico buildings into rubble, roads turned into massive cracks and sinkholes, leaving the residents terrified, homeless and traumatized. It is the closes picture to what could possibly happen during a massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake. Sponsored Links Mexico suffers so much because of its position on a large grid of tectonic plates, on which all the Earth's countries and seas sit. This is what is properly known as the Pacific Ring of Fire where the Philippines and the neighboring countries are situated.    32 years ago at exact date the 7.1 magnitude quake hit Mexico, the southern coast of the area was hit by a monster quake that killed around 5,000 people. Mexico, like Philippines and Japan sit right above the Pacific Ring Of Fire.   "Ring of Fire" is a horseshoe shaped area around the edges of the Pacific Ocean, from Australia to the Andes, along which 90% of all earthquakes occur, hence the name "Pacific Ring Of Fire."

People flood to the streets in fear of being buried alive under buildings which are unexpectedly collapsing.  However, the Department of Foreign affairs said that there are no reported casualties or injuries involving Filipinos. DFA records as of 2016 shows that there are about 635 Filipinos in the country.

This has been confirmed by MMDA Acting Chairman Tim Orbos and said to be taking place on July – the third drill being conducted on  a large scale following a similar one last year. According to Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) Director Renato Solidum, earthquake drills should be done not only in Metro Manila but  needed to be expanded in other areas such as Laguna , Bulacan , and Cavite. MMDA's Orbos and PHIVOLC's Solidum presided a meeting earlier  this month with the Metro Manila Disaster Response Cluster with regards to the series of earthquakes that occurred in several areas in the past weeks. Solidum urged people to refrain from being affected by rumors that circulate especially on social media, as these simply spread wrong information. Solidum said that people should not be afraid of the successive quakes as these  occurrences are normal. He also urged the people not to be affected by baseless rumors that are spreading on social media.   Solidum also said that since it was too far away from the West Valley Fault, the tremors had nothing to do with it. Orbos said that barangays would be included in the next earthquake drill, reiterating the importance of local governments in emergency situations like this.  Orbos also urged people to prepare their own GO-bag.  A Go-bag is an important package containing necessities such as easy-to-open canned food, flashlights, and other survival kits. Preparing a 72-hour survival kit will save the lives of your family and yourself.  Aside from being ready when such disaster happens, it is also critical  that the houses are made to endure such tremors. if not, a house or a building could collapse leaving many people injured, trapped or worse, dead.

Mexico suffers so much because of its position on a large grid of tectonic plates, on which all the Earth's countries and seas sit. This is what is properly known as the Pacific Ring of Fire where the Philippines and the neighboring countries are situated.
