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.
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?
