Last night we experienced intensity 3 earthquake. We were thankful because nothing happened to us. Magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit the epicenter in Batangas and caused damage in churches and commercial establishments. I believed in our place though we experienced intensity 3 nothing damages occurred.
My daughter and I were on the bed, she was playing her gadget while I was watching Kdrama. Suddenly, we both heard sound from the glass window and the bed was also moving a bit. We looked at each other while I’m telling to her that there is “lindol” (earthquake). My daughter was frightened and handed to me her gadget. She even asked her grandmother to sleep with us. I even heard her “Mama magdadasal ako” (mama, I will pray). Well, she prays before sleeping but I surprised to hear that words from her. So this was my daughter’s first earthquake experience and I hope it won’t happen again.
I heard in the news that there are many aftershocks happened but I don’t think we have here. In our place the tremor happened very fast, I think 20 seconds or less. Well, this kind of disaster happened unexpectedly so we should always be very careful at all times. We should be ready at all times so when time comes we are prepared. We should not be panicked and present of mind is really important at this time.
