I thought it's all because of my vertigo, but no! I felt dizzy as if my room is enclosing around me while the "spinning" at the back of my head continues. I was online by then... what ironic is that instead of confirming the earthquake and checking the intensity over the Internet, I simply texted my friends and family in a one-word panicky tone: "Lumilindol?!"

I was all by myself here in Manila so I was really shocked and yes, frightened. Thanks to MTG community via NG, I found the link about the latest news -
MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE 4) A 5.9-magnitude earthquake rocked Metro Manila and surrounding provinces at 1:29 p.m. Thursday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said, causing office workers in the metropolis to rush out of their buildings.
Phivolcs corrected its earlier estimate that the earthquake was 6.2 in magnitude, it was actually a 5.9-quake. Though the nearby provinces were also affected, Batangas (my hometown) was not mentioned so I'm glad that my family's safe.

What's with the rumbling underneath?

I am glad that everything is alright after the quake. Hope there were no damages to all the affected area especially that we have a lot of poor fellowmen that can't afford to buy or rebuild their houses. Also, a lot are having a hard time even feeding themselves. Thanks.
