Publish Date: Tuesday, October 15, 2013 | 2:41 PM

Almost immediately after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Bohol, Cebu and the southern Visayas region, images of the damage it caused were posted online. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social sites spread the word to Pinoys across the globe. But more than the destruction the quake caused, what was felt in the pictures is the tragedy this calamity has brought.

As of the latest report, at least 20 people have been confirmed dead, mostly from Cebu. They were killed by falling debris after building or parts of buildings collapsed. Dozens are injured with the number rising with each passing hour.

The tragedy has echoed not only in the Visayas, not only in the Philippine archipelago, but worldwide. Thousands of Pinoys living abroad and overseas Filipino workers (OFW) have families in Cebu, Bohol and the whole region affected by the earthquake.

This latest calamity comes only days after Typhoon Santi crossed central Luzon and brought widespread damage to crops and properties.
