October 15, 2013, Cebu experiences earthquake registering about 7.2. Reports on casualties still being assessed, though a neighboring island Bohol has been reported to suffer greater damage in the form of broken roads, piers and collapsed churches. There are already reported deaths in Bohol, broken bridges, and no electricity,

In Cebu, most malls and business are closed. Fortunately it was a holiday so there was no school and traffice was minimal. There are collapsed houses and churches in Cebu, but so far reports till coming in as to total damage, Even as I type this I just experienced a 3rd of 4th aftershock.
