Yes, there was an earthquake here in Manila.  It was apparently about a 6.0 magnitude.  I live in a sixth floor apartment here in the heart of Manila so I definitely felt it.  But it was over in a few seconds so it wasn’t really that big of a deal. 

Lindol (Tagalog for “earthquake”) is one of the first words I remember learning.  They are quite common here since the Philippines is located along the “ring of fire.”

Weather, weather lang yun
