Tsunami scare continue, fear grips coastal towns

Residents of coastal towns continue to live in fear, believing a huge tsunami is coming.

This week, text messages were passed warning of a coming tsunami, purportedly caused by the movement of the Hibok-Hibok Volcano in the nearby island of Camiguin.

The panic spread to towns of Anda, Guindulman, Duero and even up to Loay, a town just 16 kilometers away from the capital city of Tagbilaran.

Residents were calling their relatives living in higher grounds, asking that they temporarily stay with them, away from their coastal residence because of the coming rise of the seawater that later on would become a tsunami.

The Philippine Volcanology (Philvocs) office here denied receiving warning about an impending volcano eruption in Camiguin.

Philvocs officials believe the unfounded panic is anchored on the latest visit here, about a month ago, of Philvocs and the Civil Defense Administration officials who conducted tsunami preparedness drill, in the towns of Valencia and Duero.

The word-by-mouth news (radyo baktas) were probably translated that a tsunami is coming hence the preparation.

Philvocs advise that residents in costal towns should not readily believe such ridiculous stories.
