Just this week, a 5.5 magnitude earthquake happened in one of the provinces here in the Philippines. And it happened again in the same province but this time it is a 7 earthquake. The only difference from the other day and today was that the latter was felt on a lot of places in Luzon, Philippines.
I thought I was just dizzy because I’ve just woken up from my afternoon nap and then I felt my bed shaking. I didn’t know, until I checked Twitter, that it was already the earthquake happening.
Earthquake are really scary because you’ll never know when and where it will struck. Buildings and infrastructures here in the Philippines are mostly frail and are not of good construction that’s why it will be a big disaster if a huge earthquake happen, especially in Manila itself. All we can do is really prepare ahead and be alert at all times.
