6.1 Earthquake At Mindoro

And just some hours after my post about being prepared for the earthquake, we experienced one. I think it was magnitude 5 or higher. I still have to confirm. It happened about 20 or 30 minutes ago. Me and my youngest were lying in bed and I noticed that our bed was shaking. I even asked my hubby if he can feel it but no he was too engrossed on whatever he is doing.

My children and I felt it, we're generally silent when at home, so when it hit, our senses went up and head sirens were telling us to evacuate. ^___^x
