RCN, just read that jihadists have been busy even in the PI. Are you anywhere near Marawi? Hope you are safe.

I think there are something like 4000 earthquakes per year in PH of varying magnitudes. In the 5 years I`ve lived there I have only ever experienced one.

This was actually my first experience of one ever, it was quite wierd. A bit like being at work on the oil rig and a rogue wave hitting us.

I've lived in California on two occasion and experienced minor earthquakes both times. It's like you described, more like a wave than a bounce house shake.

  I was in Indio one year and a house was built above ground and every time it shook the house sunk into the sand the door is now below ground level,

Is that technically a basement now?
