Pandio 08:40 AM, Mar 24, 2022

Good day! I would like to request for a color-coded earthquake hazard map which denotes seismic design categories for North Cotabato. 

While I was able to find a ground rupture map in this site:, it did not reflect the likelihood of experiencing earthquake-shaking of various intensities- which is what the SDC symbolizes.

Hoping for your kind consideration
