6.0 magnitude earthquake strikes off coast of northern Philippines

Philippines 9 6
September 6, 2013PHILIPPINES A strong 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the northern Philippines late Friday, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, officials said. The quake was recorded at 7:33 pm local time (1133 GMT) with an epicenter about 42 kilometers (26 miles) south of Uyugan town in the Batan Islands, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said. The United States Geological Survey said the quake had a depth of 178 kilometers. Norma Talosig, the Batan Islands’ civil defense chief, said she contacted a Philippine navy detachment in Basco — the capital of the sparsely populated island group near the sea border with Taiwan — to check on the impact.  “I was told it registered as a low-intensity tremor there, with no visible damage,” Talosig told AFP. She said there were no immediate reports of casualties in Uyugan, a town of around one thousand residents, or nearby areas. The Philippines lies in the so-called Pacific ring of fire, a chain of islands that are prone to quakes and volcanic eruptions. –My Republica

    I feel like we could be very close to a nuke war, Iran has really been developing war heads now for awhile unimpeded, they want to destroy the U.S and Israel. I’m not the kind of person that is a fear monger either but I had a spiritual experience in 01 and since then I have been watching things in the world go worse all the time and I really believe that the Day of the Lord Jesus is very close now.
