Latest Earthquake Information in Manila Philippines

Posted by on Mar 21, 2011 in Announcements, Manila, Philippines | 2 comments

A quick post to guide everyone on the latest earthquake information in Manila especially that we experienced a 5.7 magnitude today, March 21, 2011 at 6:37 pm with Lubang Island near Mindoro as epicenter.  I was actually in a hotel having dinner when this happened.  Technically people here in Makati area still felt it.

Another 4.7 magnitude happened at around 9:27 with the epicenter at Pili, Camarines Sur.  It is milder but it can be felt by people in high skyscrapers like me who’s staying in the 18th floor of the hotel now.

As I type, I felt dizzy again and saw my chandeliers swaying slowly.  I’m waiting for the official word from DOST website to check if indeed it was another registered earthquake.

  1. Last week, an earthquake also occurred in cagayan de oro. although it was only 3.3. I’m really curious if these earthquakes are related to the Japan thing. I really wish I’m good at geography and stuff like that.:)
