We just had another earthquake in Bogo City. It wasn’t as strong as the one we had a couple of weeks ago. The aftershock was strong though. I was sitting outside and thought the porch was going to come out from under me.
It was a baby quake really, people in Mindanao would probably laugh at us. Jessie said, in Tacloban people would just stay in their home but I told her its
always a good idea to go outside for a bit. Never know what is coming behind it.
Here though, the schools closed and some businesses. Business, I think will reopen, guy next door came to check on his family I think.
Earthquake is Cebu itself are not uncommon but in Northern Cebu they are unheard of. I can’t find any local that remembers any quakes but the people I’ve asked are in the 30’s to 40’s.
It generally a good to have several small quakes. They say it tends to let off the pressure. However, having two quakes in less than a month in an area that doesn’t get quakes might be a bit more of a concern.
I’m no expert but its probably related to the first quake, things just shifting around. I haven’t looked to see how big it was officially. I suspect under a 3.5. Not a big deal for those use to earthquakes but I’m not one of those use to earthquakes.
