Need to Stop myLotting: Aftershock in My City!!!

It was about 1:25 PM. We experienced an aftershock. I was a bit jumpy after experiencing it. The feeling flashes back on July 16, 1990. We experienced a killer earthquake. There are a lot of people died, damaged infrastructures and houses in the city. Baguio City was even called as “the Ghost City.” I need to sign off first and get back later. My fingers are trembling while typing this composition. See you later, guys! Image Credit: pixabay.com

We are safe, my friend. In 1990, the earthquake was so terrible. You can hear the howling of dogs at night. I am sure that they were seeing restless souls.

@Shavkat I answered you before. I said we are waving the same flag, with the color blue and red, and the sun with 8 rays and 3 stars. Come to think of it you had no reaction to that comment I made.

I know how scary earthquake is .. I remember in the 70s when I was still living in Manila, there were a few earthquakes within the period of three to six months.. I remember people say that it's the sign of the end of the world .. but after nearly 40 years, the earth is very much alive.. so naturally, it moves .. Anyway, take care..

It was really scary in my city.in 1990. I had seen the house falling from the mountain. It was a terrible experience. Some people had said that it was the end of the world. Others claimed that Jesus is coming from the sky. It adds up to nerve-racking moment.lol

@Mass_Sonu It wasn't that often, my friend. Tsunami will not likely to happen in my city. I am living in the mountainside and too far from the seaside. If ever, landslides will be possible to happen.

At this point of time, there is no aftershock after the last time. However, there are some other areas of the country experiencing it. I don't want to experience it again.
