MAGNITUDE 7.2 EARTHQUAKE HITS PHILIPPINES, 20 FEARED DEAD

 
CEBU, Philippines: Last week Typhoon Nari pummeled the northern Philippines early Saturday, ripping roofs off buildings, killing 12 people and leaving more than two million without power.
Today it is reported at least 20 people were killed on Tuesday when a major 7.2 magnitude earthquake tore down buildings across three islands that are among the Philippines’ most popular tourist attractions, authorities said. 
Fifteen of the fatalities were in Cebu, the second most important city in the Philippines and a gateway to some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, civil defense office spokesman Reynaldo Balido told reporters. 
Five other fatalities were reported on neighbouring Bohol and Siquijor islands, famed for their idyllic white sands and turquoise waters that are typically visited by fast boat from Cebu. 
The death toll may have been limited due to offices and school being closed for Eid Al Adha.
