I wonder if 2020 will go out with a bang as perhaps a reflection of the repressive societal stresses and the resulting tensions, which sooner or later will find an outlet, whether that be creative or destructive. The great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on the 21st could play a role. Interesting times indeed.

6.3-magnitude earthquake rattles Philippines

2020-12-25
MANILA, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- An earthquake with the magnitude of 6.3 shook Batangas province on the main Philippine island of Luzon on Friday, the Philippine Institute of Seismology and Volcanology (Phivolcs) said.

The institute said the quake, which struck at 7:43 a.m. local time, hit at a depth of 102 kilometers, about 11 kilometers southwest Calatagan town, about 100 kilometers south of capital Manila.

Metro Manila and nearby provinces of Batangas, Laguna, Cavite, Rizal also felt the tremor, the institute said.

The institute said the quake, which was tectonic in origin, will trigger aftershocks but will not cause damage.

Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum told local radio that the quake will not generate a tsunami.

A spokesman for the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said there was no reports of damage from the quake so far.

The Philippines has frequent seismic activity due to its location along the Pacific "Ring of Fire".
