Quake jolts in Mindanao





       It was 3:00 pm yesterday when I felt our house is shaking, and our windchimes is so loud, and I thought i was just nauseated lol, theres a quake, gosh I was scared, good thing it did not last long and theres no damages and after shock. It was intensity 4 here in Davao where I lived, Mati and Cateel town in Davao Oriental, Intensity 3 in Malita and Malalag (Davao Del Sur) Tagum City and Cagayan De Oro Butuan City and  intensity 2 in General Santos City, Bansalan and Digos City also in Davao Del Sur.

    No casulaties were reported, Phivolcs official said the quake's epicenter was at 86 kilometers northeast off the coast of Mati Davao Oriental. It was tectonic in origin and recorded at a depth of 92 kilometers.
The phivolcs classify intensity 5 as a strong earthquake, which means it is generally felt by most people indoors and outdoors.

picture is from 1990 Luzon earthquake

Lets take care,and be ready when theres earthquake, If you are indoor's Drop to the ground; take cover by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture; and Hold on until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building. Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting fixtures or furniture. Be aware that the electricity may go out or the sprinkler systems or fire alarms may turn on. and most of all dont forget to pray.
