More than 800 aftershocks have been recorded since the strong 7-magnitude earthquake that hit the Philippines.
Anxious residents have been sleeping outside in fear for their lives after hundreds of aftershocks have rattled the earthquake-hit northern Philippines as President Ferdinand Marcos Jr inspected the damage in the region.
Six people have now died and more than 150 injured when the 7.0-magnitude quake struck the province of Abra on Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The death toll rose to six on Thursday when a 59-year-old man was hit by a landslide caused by an aftershock, a local disaster official said.
The powerful quake rippled across the mountains of the Philippines toppling buildings, triggering landslides and shaking high-rise towers hundreds of kilometers away in the capital of Manila.
Residents now say that aftershocks have been happening almost every 15-20 minutes and that almost every family has been sleeping outside at night.
The government has urged people to wait for their homes to be inspected before moving back in as families have been given tents to stay in.
A state of calamity was declared in Abra, which felt the full force of the quake, as hundreds of buildings were damaged or destroyed, roads were blocked by landslides, and power was knocked out in affected areas.
The director of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said in a briefing that the aftershocks were expected to continue for “several weeks.”
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 6) foretell that there will be earthquakes in the prophetic Last Days signaling the world is nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
