I was eating lunch with my nephew and my father when we felt the earth shaking. First I thought I was feeling dizzy its only when I realized that its an earthquake when I saw the chandelier swaying. There have been so many movements happening in our planet.

Yes, We also experienced this exact earthquake you are talking about. I, too am from the Philippines. About lunch time, we were standing in the kitchen and we felt the earth move and the kitchen utensils were hanging by their pegs and swinging. I think the other day, Indonesia experienced a strong earthquake.

I felt dizzy after that. I was so worried for my nephew who said he never felt it. Thank God nothing serious happened.

Even I had once a very similar feeling with an earth quake in our place but thankfully it was mild at that time. I was at my work and suddenly felt somewhat of a shaking feeling and I had thought of dizzy spell like falling off with a swaying and I thought initially that was due to the fact that I had not had my breakfast and I was having some dizzy spell but only some time later I realized that everyone else in the room had very similar feeling and then everyone rushed out of the building and stayed outside for some time till everything stayed calm for some time. I still cannot forget that incident even now.

Hello dear MisterPlus. I am so sorry to hear that you had an earthquake two months ago. I hope that nothing serious ever happened. It is so terrible to have an earthquake. Just about two years ago, in my area, we had also felt a slightly-shaken earthquake, but it was ok for us as there was no loss at all. Take care as always, my dear friend.

Yes my friend, I am glad that nothing serious happen after of during that earthquake. There was another mild earthquake in our region yesterday with a intensity of 2. I still remember the most disastrous earthquake we had. It was in July of 1990. Many buildings collapsed on that day and many lives were buried. I hope this won't happen again.

Yes there was at around 12:30 p.m. here in our place. It is only intensity 3 but still, you will feel the shaking. It was said by a priest in his sermon that during those times, God is reminding us of the end of the world. And that we should be ready.

Reminding us of his power and grace. We should always pray for our salvation.

I am afraid of earthquake. I just cant forget it easily every time taht there is an earthquake. I cant help but be afraid esp for my family. Because of some news that some building and houses collapse during earthquake. I guess we should be careful and just pray every time there is an earthquake.

How frightening nature can be. The very fact that earth quakes are so totally sudden, with no warning is the biggest factor, for me. Most other natural incidences usually have at least a little bit of warning time.

I hope someday they find a way to detect an earth quake coming for the whole world to be safe and ready.
