I vividly remember that I was at work.... one afternoon, it was raining too hard, when the rain stopped, it was very hot...
Suddenly, a very strong EARTHQUAKE

From USGS Site... (link below) Magnitude 7.7

At least 1,621 people killed, more than 3,000 people injured and severe damage, landslides, liquefaction, subsidence, and sandblows in the Baguio-Cabanatuan-Dagupan area. Damage also occurred in Bataan Province and at Manila. Large fissures were observed in the epicentral area. Surface faulting occurred along the Philippine and Digdig faults. Felt (VII RF) in the Manila area, (VI RF) at Santa, (V RF) at Cubi Point and (IV RF) at Callao Caves.

Let us remember the people who died on that day....
