One witness said: “Building swayed quite scarily. Almost lost my footing while walking. No breakage/tumble. Estimate two waves, second stronger. About 15-20 secs altogether.” Another witness said: “Very strong earthquake in Parañaque (a few km south of Manila).” One wrote: “Inside the car in the 3rd level parking floor. The car was dancing on its suspension. Some shaking felt for about 2 minutes then subsided.
