Read this before buying real property

Is the location of your property flood, landslide, tsunami, or earthquake safe?

If you are currently thinking of buying a condominium unit, house & lot or just a small piece of land, see to it that it is not in a high-risk area. This is not only for protecting your future investment but also protecting the lives of your love ones and not be just another disaster statistic.

Flood / Landslide GeoHazard Maps

You can get the National flood-landslide geohazard maps at the Mines and Geosciences Bureau's (MGB) website.  On the other hand, a more modern Google Maps style viewing can be seen in this mapcentral and MGB collaboration but only covers a few provinces.

For Metro Manila property owners, you can have a quick look at this Flood Hazard Map of Metro Manila, also from the MGB website.

Tsunami Hotspot Maps
For tsunami hotspots in the Philippines, you can take a look at this DOST-PHIVOLCS web page for tsunami prone areas.

Earthquake Fault Zones
For the known earthquake fault zones in the country, information from DOST is also available in these web pages:
