    Another Powerful Quake Shakes Indonesia
    PADANG, Indonesia - The second powerful earthquake in as many days shook western Indonesia Thursday, collapsing buildings in a coastal city and triggering tsunami alerts around the region. The latest quake was also felt in Malaysia and in Singapore where tall buildings swayed. It triggered at least one strong aftershock.
    On Wednesday, a strong earthquake shook Southeast Asia, collapsing buildings, killing at least five people and injuring dozens in Indonesia. That tremor triggered a small non-destructive tsunami off the coastal city of Padang on Sumatra, the Indonesian island ravaged by the 2004 tsunami disaster. A tsunami warning was issued for wide areas of the region and nations as far away as Africa.

    Thursday's magnitude-7.8 quake rattled the same area of Sumatra.

    Rafael Abreu, a geologist with The U.S. Geological Survey in Colorado, said the quake on Thursday did not appear to be an aftershock to the 8.4-magnitude temblor the day before. But the centers of both were close together.

    It seems na a lot of countries have been hit by earthquakes these past few months. Sana wag na tayong sumunod sa trend.

    one of the most dangerous force of nature.
    my worst experience was that of the 1990 killer quake in baguio.
    had to walk our way out from baguio to zablan la union.it's really a nightmare seeing lots of dead/injured people.

    marami na kasing makasalan sa mundo,

    like our government. walang itulak kabigin. lahat may vested interest.

    like the squatters, reklamo ng reklamo, wala namang taxes na maibayad, tayong nagbabayad ng taxes, ni hindi tyo makapag reklamo.

    its too ironic, isnt it?

    kaya kahit nature, galit na.
