Thirty-four hours passed by when a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Bohol.
It was around eight in the morning yesterday when my brother woke me up and told me to get up because of the earthquake that was going. The moment I have my senses for real, I felt like a dancing drunk and I can really feel that our house was shaking, things were moving and
it was like crazy. That phenomena is not really a nice wake up call in the morning. No one likes that feeling to be scared first thing in your day!
We listened directly to the news and we found that Carmen, Bohol was the epicenter of that earthquake. Bohol felt 7.2 magnitude and Cagayan de Oro felt 4.0 magnitude earthquake.
The next Island of Bohol is Cebu. These two province were affected so much by this quake, mostly infrastructure damages but the sad news is, there are people who died in this natural disaster. I have a friend who is working/living in Cebu and I am glad he is safe and sound. He even shared how it feels like to be in 9th floor when it happened. There’s still aftershocks happening in Central Visayas and people really felt it and it shakes them.
This is one of the old Churches in Bohol. 😦 Check BBC News post http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24530042 and Inquirer.net article http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/507169/6-dead-power-down-as-7-2-quake-hits-bohol
The damaged that this earthquake brought was at least lesser. Why? October 15 was a regular Holiday and no classes and no work. We should be at least thankful that it was a Holiday because if not, the damaged must been even worse including the life that been taken away by this disaster.
Praying for Philippines!
A note to life – live with faith!
