Earthquake

Earthquake strikes again

Yesterday it hits again in Surigao and the magnitude was intensity 6. I and my sister talked about it this afternoon, and she said that there are many huge fishes docked in shore. They were found in Cagayan, Cebu, and Saranggani.

Before the big earthquake happened in Japan few years ago, there were huge fishes found in the shore and they said that once the huge fishes will come out from the deepest ocean, the tectonic plate is disturbed. And everyone is panicked because some huge fishes are appearing in the shore; they said that a big intensity would happen soon. There is even a post about it saying we need to prepare. And I can’t help but get scared, I just hope that if it will happen, we are complete in the house especially my niece, her office is on the top floor in one of the malls in our place. Lord, have mercy on us; I hope this big one will not occur at all.

An Intensity 7.2 Earthquake Hits Bohol and Cebu

We were so shocked with the news that happened this morning; it was past 8 in the morning when Bohol and Cebu experienced a 7.2 intensity earthquake. The earthquake was so strong that many establishments in Cebu and Bohol were collapsed and even the roads were torn up. Davao City also had the 3 intensity earthquake it is not that strong that I didn’t even feel it maybe I was outside handing the garbage to the garbage collector; I mean I have to walk where the garbage truck is waiting for us. My Facebook was flooded by updates of the status in Cebu and Bohol; many netizens are posting some of the pictures of how devastated the earthquake was. I was surprised that the Sto. Nino Church, one of the oldest churches in the Philippines was also affected. Some parts of the building were damaged caused by the strong earthquake.

This was me when my friend and I went to Cebu years ago, and one of our plans for the day is to visit the Sto. Nino Church, I was even amazed of the beauty of the church when I went there. But due to the earthquake that happened this morning, the oldest Church in the Philippines was collapsed.

This picture is not mine, I just snagged this picture from yahoo (ANC- ABS CBN news) when I was browsing for updates in Cebu and Bohol status. It pained me seeing this picture but even so the faith and belief of the Filipino people will not be shaking, I know GOD will always protect his people.

Intensity VI – Inigaran, Negros Occidental
Intensity V – Iloilo City; La Carlota, Negros Occidental

Two Surprising News

When I open my FB through my phone, I was so surprised with the shout out of my cousin, she just said that there was an earthquake a while ago and it was a bit strong. I was not able to notice it while sleeping, my husband woke me up on the phone but I didn’t realize that earlier than that, an earthquake just occur. The earthquake was 5.9 intensity and it was 9Km east of Talisay, Philippines. The affected nearby places were Mati, Lupon, Pantukan, and Koror Town Palau.

There is also surprising news that really struck me and this would happen on Sunday. Remember the killer typhoon Pablo that devastated the South and left with lots of victims from flash floods and landslides caused by the strong gusting wind. Yes, Pablo unexpectedly turned and make a landfall again in the North. So Luzon area should be extra careful as Pablo would travel and strong winds up to 160 kilometers with heavy rains in early hours. The typhoon is following the current of the ocean.

Earthquake At 2:30 A.M. November 3, 2012

I just read a shout out from my cousin in FB, saying she felt an earthquake and it was strong, she posted that shout out 4 or 5 hours and probably I was already or still sleeping that time. And, I am not sure if I would be happy or sad about it but I was not able to wake up. This is what I don’t like when if there is an accident like this and I don’t know what to do. I’m sure like planning what to do, take Faith with me, open our bedroom door, get the keys, wake the kids up in the other room and together we would go out in the kitchen door and off to the street while waiting when the earthquake would stop but can you think clearly when you are panic.

On the other hand, it says that the epicenter is in between Burgos and Tandag. Tandag is in Surigao Del Sur the epi center was in the ocean and it has the intensity of 6.1. East of Burgos, North of Tandag, Lianga Philippines, Bayugan and Manila Philippines were the nearby cities that was affected by the Earthquake. The shaking was also felt at Borongan, Butuan, Cagayan De Oro, Davao, Maasin, Madrid, Surigao and Tacloban. The earthquake strikes at 2:30 a.m.
