We are located 21 miles from epicentre, my experience here.


Hi guys, we need more earthquake gurus focusing on the big Philippine quake. We need to know what is in store and are worried about future events such as volcanic. Reason being is have been told that there are reports on local radio that yellow stuff is showing up in the sea around Loon. Locals are reporting lots of dead fish in the sea.. Talk of underground volcano.

Then i find out where i live 21 km from epi, sink holes and even ground water on our island is pumping out mostly yellow water from the wells!
I have not witnessed this first hand as am in Manila now to give myself and family a rest from the many aftershocks.
But the coconut telagraph has made it to the headlines...see here

What is the yellow stuff, why dead fish? What is going on!!!

I got nervous about this one because my daughter lives with my ex and her family, and at least some of the time is in the Maasin area. Now I'll really have to keep an eye on it.

The yellow stuff may be sulfur or a sulfur compound.

It might be prudent to keep your distance from the yellow stuff. Toxic gases might be present.

Found this on the yellow water. According to this, geologists think that it may be phosphatic water, which is not healthy to drink and can cause a fishkill. Not good! Glad you all are okay though.

Thanks for the update. Glad to know you're ok, but condolences to all who have lost loved ones. When something like that happens, it helps when someone from there connects to the rest of us. The Facebook slide show really brings it home. No wonder you must be on edge. How is your sleep quality? Are you sleeping outdoors? Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Yellow color comes from sulfur chrystals and is due opening in the earth crust, those openings are also called Fumaroles

Fumarole Wikipedia

When you think positive, even the situation must have been stressing.. you have something special to remember.

Yellow stuff might be sulphur.
Is there an odour?
Or sulphuric acid, whatever that is. I'm not a chemist

Sulphur is a neon lime yellow colour when in powder form

It's probably a gas leak from the Earth. My advice would be to stay away from it, just in case .. And wait for scientists to confirm that it's safe.
Glad you are okay and hope that the worst is behind you.

Sulfur and iron in the mantle, and core.

Whole lot of crust breakage going on!

I'm curious if you've heard of any miracles occurring in the whole scene.

Please take care! What a hazardous region!

Any volcanoes coming to life?

Thanks for all the replys guys. I am at the Manila airport heading home to Mactan island Cebu. There have been 7 shocks today around 5.0. People are starting to crack up, one in our community committed suicide.Very Catholic country and some are thinking God is angry.
Miracles? Um...I'm sure there has been but nothing stands out. I think because it was a holiday is very fortunate as many where at home instead of at school and at work.
Scores of buildings that are still standing have been deemed unfit in a very large radius from center.

Regarding yellow stuff the experts here say its phosphorus and not to fear volcanoes. I'm not so sure..the shocks are spreading out and following a general line.

Apparently our island is shaped like an umbrella sitting on a stem...maybe a mushroom would be a better analogy. I need to research that for myself


Anybody have good links or resources other than the standard quake maps?

Salamat Po ATS

I can't point you towards anything useful, but I strongly suggest that you pop in to the Quake Watch thread and ask the knowledgeable people in it for assistance finding information. They can find just about anything you can think of

Bad news.

Isn't suicide against Catholic doctrine though? If a Catholic thinks God is causing Earthquakes because it's huffy, won't killing yourself make it even more murderous?

Killing yourself AFTER you survive an Earthquake that's killed many others?

Seems...ungrateful somehow.
