Quakes Due to Undersea Volcano, Expert Claims

Manila: Three major earthquakes that occurred in the south Philippines on July 24 were due to the eruption of Kawio Barat, a big underwater volcano rising 10,000 feet from 18,000 feet of water between Indonesia and the south Philippines, said an expert, whose analysis was challenged by a local scientist.

Three major undersea earthquakes with magnitudes of 6.8 and 7.1 on the Richter scale, occurred in the Moro Gulf off Mindanao on July 24, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) confirmed, adding the undersea quakes did not damage land areas.

The quakes, tectonic in origin, had nothing to do with the eruption of a recently discovered undersea volcano, the Kawio Barat, Mahar Lagmay, associate professor at the University of the Philippines National Institute of Geological Sciences, told the Inquirer.

However, Jim Holden, chief scientist for the US-Indonesia deep-sea expedition of Kawio Barat, said in a press release quoted by the Inquirer that the major earthquakes off south Philippines last month were due to the eruption of Kawio Barat, which was recently found by scientists under the seabed of Sulawesi Islands in Indonesia.
