Many people were relaxing in the national day of Eidul Adha, Tuesday, when a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck in the central Philippines, in the Bohol region. The quake’s depth was 12 miles (20 kilometers). It was centered at about 385 miles (619 kilometers) south – southeast of Manila, near Catigbian, a city with a population of 23,000. Even at 37 miles of the epicenter, in the streets of Cebu City, there was glass and concrete in the streets.
