Was chatting on yahoo with a friend in Cabadbaran when the quake hit. She went off line for a few minutes. Came back to report a strong quake. I asked if she was okay.. She said “NO, talk to you tomorrow.” Nothing more. She lost her connection.

The earthquake was located about 60 miles east of the Visayas region of the Philippines.
Samar, Leyte, Dingat Island, Borongan City, Maydolong, Guiuan, and other towns and cities would be in a direct path of a Tsunami or effected by the earthquake.

While I’ve been somewhat skeptical in regards to the theories of the lunar influence on major EQs, there is a full moon tonight.

Thanks Moose. There still haven't been any CD warnings here nor any reports of seismic sea wave events on islands east of the P.I.

Warnings are usually issued immediately and updated every 20-30 minutes as the data comes in.
