PhiVolcs disgree on the Triangle of Life theory
Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology or PHIVOLCS contradicted to the theory about the “triangle of life” that widely spread on social networking sites effectively saying on how to avoid disaster during an earthquake.
Dir. Renato Solidum of PHIVOLCS said that you should avoid those disseminating misleading information especially those that widely spread on multimedia sites and particularly related to saving lives.
The triangle of life theory is a survival method on how to response to an earthquake disaster by hiding yourself in the corner of the wall, beam, cabinet and other things that fashions some triangle called “safe zone” or safe place during an earthquake.
Solidum said that it still better to hide under the table or any solid things that you can hide inside a house or building in time of the earthquake.
Solidum’s also stated that it is more better to follow those theory and method that is more acceptable to the world rather than those method that is just assumptions on some few individuals who do not yet have enough basis and creation.
