Data for same earthquake as reported from other agencies
Hilongos, Leyte / MMI IV (Light shaking): While already awake because of making camomile tea we suddenly got that light shake felt. Nothing happened so far. It took less than 10 seconds. Scary. Maybe it was happening as still another aftershock of that strong earthquake in Bohol what had happened in October 15th,2013 (7.3).

Ijen volcano photos: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
Intraplate volcanism: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
