Everyone's (ok, definitely not) certainly talking, blogging, texting, tweeting, fbing, etc. about the earthquake that hit Central Visayas at about noon today. There have been many more aftershocks that were felt after that 6.8 mag shakedown. Casualties and damage are minimal as of latest news. We are thankful.
There was of course a tsunami warning level 2 which caused a lot to panic. That level meant that we need to be watchful of signs of tsunami, but it did not call for evacuation. Some had other things in mind. So they started running up to higher ground. I cannot really blame them, but when people start believing everything they read via sms or hear things without verification (typical hysteria and panic effects), well, sh_t happens.
Pray and stay safe.
