107 dead in massive Visayas quake
CEBU (5th UPDATE)- A powerful earthquake killed at least 107 people in the Philippines Tuesday as it generated landslides that buried homes, triggered terrified stampedes and destroyed historic churches.
Guess the death toll will continue to rise.

In an earthquake you will not die because of the shaking but with the falling debris. The epicenter of this earthquake happened in Bohol which is not urbanized and less population so there will be less deaths and you cannot die in an eathquake in the middle if a rice field unless the ground opens up.

What's alarming is the Marikina Fault System which is urbanized and populated and an earthquake like 7.2 could happen anytime and many analyst predicted that at least 30000 would die.
