Major M7.0 earthquake in Mindanao triggers brief tsunami warning for Philippines & Indonesia (videos and maps)


One week after the devastating volcanic tsunami in Indonesia, another powerful geological event occurred in this very active region of the dangerous ‘Ring of Fire’. A major quake hit Mindanao, Philippines, on December 29, 2018, triggering brief tsunami warnings for Philippines & Indonesia.

A brief tsunami warning has been issued for the Philippines, as well as for the coasts of Indonesia and Palau, after a powerful 7.0 earthquake hit the southern island of Mindanao.

The National Weather Service’s Pacific Tsunami Warning System initially released a hazardous wave alert for all coasts within 300 kilometers of the quake, a radius that includes much of Indonesia and the Philippines.

There have been no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the Mindanao quake, which hit at a depth of 60km at 3:39 UTC on December 29, 2018.

Government agencies have been advised to inform populations in coastal areas of the risk and to instruct them on relevant evacuation procedures, depending on the threat level.

The islands of Geme and Tabukan Tengah (Indonesia) as well as Davao (Philippines) may experience tsunami waves within the hour. Davao City, on the southern Philippines island of Mindanao, is home to over 1.6 million people.

Indonesia’s Sumatra and Java were struck by a deadly tsunami last weekend that was triggered by a massive underwater landslide caused by the erupting Anak Krakatau volcano. At least 426 people died in the Sunda Strait because of the tsunami, authorities said Friday, lowering the initial death toll as some of the victims were recorded twice.

  1. Pole Shift might happen within 7 years or even sooner.

    I would like to recap the info about Polar Shift. The guy who is making the following video is working some kind of observatory, and observing the North Pole movement for Polar Shift. He is observing that the tipping point (40 degrees zero point) is ONLY 300 miles away! He is telling us if the pole moves constant distance, it will take 7 years to reach that tipping point. But recent 3 months, the North Pole moved 3 times faster than before. That means the Polar Shift might happen much earlier than 7 years or even sometime next year or year 2020? This kind of information you cannot get from FAKE NEWS from our TV nor from government. But look! Recently Government has revealed that we might lose the whole grid, and we might have Martial Law after Christmas. Government knows something big might happen soon, but of course, they will NOT tell us.

    Only 300 miles left till 40 degrees zero point heads up.
