Did you feel the earthquake earlier today? If you live in Luzon, you probably did.

At exactly 8:43am today, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake shook the Province of Abra as reported by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS). The tremors were felt all throughout Metro Manila. As such, train operators have now suspended trips as they conduct safety checks along various railways earlier today.
