Strong earthquake hits near Philippines
AP - Thursday, October 8
WASHINGTON – A strong earthquake struck south of the Philippines on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.7 and was located in the Celebes Sea, 175 miles southeast of Jolo, Sulu Archipelago, and 730 miles south of Manila. The quake hit at 5:41 p.m. EDT, or 5:41 a.m. Thursday local time.
USGS did not report any damages or injuries.(link)
I don't know with this one, but I hope authorities are getting prepared for whatever might happen next. The country cannot afford another calamity that will add up to the damage already there from the past events (Ondoy and Pepeng).
Let's be ready and forget not to pray.
