The news of the 7-magnitude strong earthquake in northern Philippines in which reportedly four died and many are injured is so sad (â€œStrong quake kills 4, injures 60 in Philippines,â€ July 27, Rlixa website).
According to the report a strong earthquake in northern Philippines has killed four people and injured 60. The 7-magnitude quake was centred in the hard-hit province of Abra in a mountainous area, said Renato Solidum, the head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. â€œThe ground shook like I was on a swing and the lights suddenly went out. We rushed out of the office, and I heard screams and some of my companions were in tears,â€ said Michael Brillantes, a safety officer of the Abra town of Lagangilang, near the epicentre.
I would like to express my deep sorrow to the families who lost their loved ones in the natural disaster.
