    It is a very bad news. I weeped when i hear this news on television. A powerful earthquake rocked Indonesia’s premier tourist island of Bali, killing one person, injuring two. The Meteorological and Geophysics Agency in Jakarta said the earthquake measured 5.5 on the Richter scale. The epicenter was near Denpasar, the island’s capital.

    I had a similar experience of eathrquake in Taiwan. A earthquake that struck Taiwan in September 1999 at 2.00 P.M., killing thousands.

    Residents of the Philippine capital Manila were jolted awake by a strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2. Ramon Sanes of the Philippine Institute of Vulcanology and Seismology said the preliminary magnitude was measured at 6.2 and was caused by movement in the Manila Trench, near Mindoro south of Manila. The Philippines is along the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire,” where earthquakes and volcanic activity are common.
