I am very sensitive to the situation as I had to guide family and employees through it as well. I was a bit scared myself sitting on the 7th floor of a 14 story building. But by nature I am pragmatic

Here in Argao, it was closer to a minute-felt like being on a big fishing boat with big swells in the ocean. Then we had second much quicker/smaller. My dog was trembling all over. Maid clutching kitc

First time you've hugged your wife in 19 months? Geez man, do it more often. : )

I would NOT describe it as "weakley felt" it was "strongly felt' on the 3rd floor of my house.

Sha-Sha was very frightened!

Turned on Channel 4 (7) GMA looking for news on the quake. NOTHING. PATHETIC. What do I expect? Some kind of update, that's what I expect.

 

Why isn't there a national emergency broadcast channel? No, it's a rhetorical question. I know the answer.

My female chowchow barked like crazy, the other two male dogs didn't care. My wife got scared, I reassured her of our house safety. Is it a gender thing?

That was very scary, we were both shaking. I grabbed Marielyn and told her to get out fast, I thought the house was going to collapse.

 

Few small aftershocks hit Argao area.

 

I think the dogs shit themselves more than we did, and somehow I managed to step in some and walk it back in the house without knowing.... bastards.
