At least 43 people were killed and not included the victims of the landslide, where 10 or more houses got trapped. There was a girl who was got buried alive also, before that she still able to text her family that she needs help fast because she almost out of breath and she could see some light, too bad it when the rescuer found her shes already not breathing.
It crushed my heart when I saw this news last night, I did not do anything but watch Tv patrol online yesterday just to know the update of the earthquake. I was secretly crying, I don't want my husband to see me cried, I don't want him to get worry. I told my husband maybe its really the end of the world, because there is a lot of calamities that hit the Philippines not just in my country but worldwide, there's war everywhere. Well I rather say its the end of humanity not the world. I remember when I was young, that time I experienced the worst earthquake, from what I remember it is also 6.8 strong but there is no serious damages and fortunately no one got killed by that quake. But then I forgot where is the epicenter of the earthquake maybe it is very far from Davao City. Or we just got luck that time, God only knows.
I pray to God, that He will protect all the people their in the Philippines from all calamities and dangers that's is happening and I hope there is no more calamities that will come in the future. As a catholic I think that its a wake up call for us, maybe sometimes we forget to thank God or we just pray or go to church if we need something from Him. Let's offer our prayers for all the people who got affected by the devastating earthquake.
