We're on the 37th floor of the building in Makati. Didn't know about it until the wife's mom called us in the morning.

You must have been sleeping soundly. That high up it would have been very noticeable.
In a major quake that would be the very last place I'd want to be -- especially with the construction standards here. Darned scary!

Exactly. I told her that I didn't want to stay above about the 6th floor anywhere, but her aunt arranged this deal for us. I hate high buildings, but it was hard to pass this up.

The whole yr before Pinatubo blew there were quakes, with main one hitting Baguio and tearing it up, but felt all way down to Subic (was driving and car wobbling all over road) and in Manila where most buildings were damaged. A year later Pinatubo blew and we had small quakes left and right for 24 hrs during that mess....So, hope this is not a forewarning of things to come!

I was stationed at Cubi Point Subic Bay at the time of that big quake. A buddy and I were at my house in Barrio Barretto sitting on the trunk of my old beat up Nova having a beer when it hit. We both turned around to see who was making the car bounce but no one was there. We then saw other stuff moving and put two & two together.

I was a US Navy photographer & special aircrewman & was ordered to fly to Baguio from Subic to photograph the devastation. The photos were to be used to show the U.S. Senate so they'd appropriate emergency financial assistance to the Philippine government to help with the aftermath. I'm sure all funding allocated made it to those who needed it most...ya right.

I was stationed in the Philippines for nearly five years and had spent several weeks in Baguio while on leave. I’ll never forget the devastation in Baguio from that quake.

Another area that was hit hard by the quake was Cabanatuan. The worst place I photographed was a vocational school there. On the day of the quake there just happened to be a group of young grade school kids touring the school. Many of the kids did not make it out of the building. God bless & RI.P. That was one job I wish I never had to photograph.

Glad everyone is fine from this latest quake. It just so happens, my wife & I have property right there in Pundaquit. Thanks for the update.

It's like Galactic said... nothing of note in ramifications happened. I didn't even have anything fall of the shelves or pictures off the wall. So it was more like a rude wake up if that.
