6.5R in Samar, Philippines

A strong 6.5R earthquake has just been reported 19km West of Nena, in Philippines. It follows the strong 6.3R reported yesterday. The fact that no aftershocks were reported led me to believe that we had not seen everything yet. Sure this morning we have this 6.5R. The epicenter location is shown in the maps above. The calendar for Philippines, shows this was late, but we can see on 21st and 22nd we have a double peak. Lets hope we have no loss of life or damages. Be Safe Be Good.
