A country that falls within the "Pacific Ring of Fire," the Philippines is naturally susceptible to a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Unknown to many, the country experiences at least 20 earthquakes on a daily basis although most are not strong enough to actually make an impact on humans.
Still, Anatomy of a Disaster, GMA-7’s monthly environmental series, has chosen this important and equally dangerous topic for its third installment, which will air this Sunday, October 31.
Aside from featuring the world’s largest and most destructive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the program thorough its host, Greenpeace advocate Richard Gutierrez, makes a quick run-down of the country’s most popular volcanoes scattered all over the archipelago, both active and dormant.
Richard also embarks on a treacherous journey as he examines one of the more scenic but complex active volcanoes in the country, the Taal Volcano, which at the time of his visit was at alert level 1.
Find out the many secrets surrounding the famous volcano straight from the local residents, who will not only share their experiences with earthquakes, but also survival tips for viewers to learn from.
This explosive and info-packed episode of Anatomy of a Disaster airs this Sunday, October 31, after Show Me The Manny on SNBO.
