Aftershocks Make Me Seasick

Oh man, after more than a week I thought the aftershocks have permanently gone away since yesterday I did not feel even one.

It’s Like An Earthquake! Oh No! It Actually Is!

earthquakeOctober 20, 2013. I will never forget that day. While still fast asleep early morning, my wife and I were awaken with the sound and feel of rumbling. Like some giant was drilling on the ground using a … giant drill ;).

Even when we awoke, while going outside the house and down the stairs, I still could not think straight and understand what the heck was going on. Sigh … that was one hell of an experience. An earthquake with a 7.2 magnitude just hit the Visayas island of the Philippines where the epicenter was pinpointed in Bohol.

Cebu, a neighboring island somehow got more or less the same brunt of the impact that the earthquake gave out. Structures fell, walls cracked and heritage sites damaged. Even until now, I feel like the earth is moving all the time.

When I lie down in bed or when I sit in the office during work, I get stressed out all the more whenever those aftershocks come into play.

Oh man, this was my first earthquake experience and in a way, I am thankful that it was a Muslim holiday that time. The casualties and damages could have been worse if people were out because of school and work. Heck, who knows what might have happened to me if I was in the building at work?!

Even until now, I still could not shake off the feeling of that earthquake. Yes, in time it can heal my mind off from that harrowing experience but as of now, I will just have to bear with the memories that still plague me and give me jitters whenever aftershocks occur.

And they say these aftershocks will last a month. Yikes!
