  3. Phivolcs is full of it. USGS is stating it was a 5.6. There is absolutely NO WAY it was a 3.0 and that far away. It shook for 30 seconds and moved quite a bit.

  6. Kayut ra kaayo. Ni-uyug akong gilingkuran nga katre for mga 1-2 seconds. Abi nako nalipong rako, pero ni-sway2x man pud ang picture frame sa bumbong, so kabalo ko nilinog.

    Metro Cebu man ko so hinay ra kaayong linog.
