Praying and hoping there is no destruction wherever here in the Philippines with this February 6,2012 earthquake. Everyone here is still waiting for news about the earthquake and trying to contact family members.

Watching news on GmA News TV now 12:32 noon : East coast of Negros and West Coast of Cebu on Tsunami Alert 2. No evacuation since tsunami alert is only no 2 but everyone is advise to stay away from the shoreline. Alert No 2 means no destructive waves expected and hence, no force evacuation. If after 2 hours no report is received by Phivolcs and government authority, the tsunami alert will be lifted.

UPDATE: 1pm - The US Geological Survey has lowered the earthquake from 6.8 magnitude to Magnitude 6.7.
