Huge Fissures Form In The Ground In Antique, Philippines - Is A Big One Building Up?

Huge cracks in the ground fissure Antique, Philippines facing Negros Trench a subduction zone – Is a Big One building up?

Some huge cracks are tearing the ground apart in the area of Valderramma, Antique in the Philippines since June 10, 2021.

Approximately 200 residents have been evacuated in Barangay Igmasandig, Valderrama, Antique as ground cracks in the area continue to expand.

This region of Antique is situated located in the Sundaland block, facing the Negros Trench, a subduction zone that goes under the Philippine Mobile Belt.

Movement from the Sunda and the Philippine Sea Plate along these trenches will have an effect on every coastal areas of the Philippines.

The Antique Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) received reports of the fissures on June 10.

On Friday the cracks were estimated to measure around 250 meters and growing.

The cracks destroyed 8 houses and partially damaged 9 others as well as the Barangay hall and chapel of Igmasandig.

More of this will happen especially if you are near subduction zones. You should prepare accordingly.

So is a Big earthquake building up in that area? Are these cracks related to the movements of the subduction zone and/or caused by pressure accumulating in the ground?
