It takes me an hour or two before I get back to sleep because I was thinking that there will be an after shock. It was my first time to experience a strong quake here in Baguio, although sometimes I felt minor shake but very minimal to notice especially if you are moving.
In the morning, when I wake up, I try to figure it out. I open my t.v. and saw in the news that it was a magnitude 4.9 earthquake.
According to Philvolcs, the quake hits by 12:49 am and its epicenter was at 10 km northwest of Baguio City. It was a tectonic quake and with 4km deep.
Based on Philvolcs intensity scale, Intensity IV is described as Moderately Strong, which can be felt generally by people indoors and outdoors and it can causes light sleepers like me to be awakened.
The good thing is that there were no immediate reports on casualty or damages from this recent Baguio City earthquake.
