"Earthquake!"

Yesterday we felt an intensity 4 earthquake here in our Office at Clark, Pampanga. At first I thought I was getting dizzy staring at the computer but when it started getting strong then that's the time I realized it was an earthquake. It lasted less than two minutes I think. It was going in two motion that will really shake whatever is above the ground. Of course we didn't panic but we're ready if anything goes worst.

I chatted with my friends afterwards and ask them if they felt the earthquake of them informed us that it came from somewhere in the sea near the island of Occidental Mindoro. It was intensity six there. My wife texted me if I felt the earthquake and I said yes. We're just thankful that it wasn't strong enough to do some damages.

Since last year I think I've felt 3 or 4 earthquakes in our office but it was just mild shakes of the ground. Maybe it was caused some volcanic eruptions because Philippines is part of the ring of fire in the pacific, places like Japan, Philippines and other neighboring countries. So quakes are often felt in this places.

Let's just pray that there will be no more earthquakes like in Chile and Haiti.
