MANILA, Philippines – Photos of collapsed churches and infrastructure trended online on Tuesday as netizens and media scrambled to get as much information on the devastation caused by a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol, Cebu and nearby provinces.

Most shared were photos of the heavily-damaged Loboc Church and Baclayon Church in Bohol. Both centuries-old churches are heritage sites and main tourist attractions in the province.

Others showed a fallen balcony of Gaisano Country Mall in Cebu and Cebu Doctors hospital which caught fire during the earthquake.

On Twitter, Filipinos called the images “heartbreaking” while others asked for prayers.

    swerte ng mga pulitikong nagsuspend ng mga classes sa metro manila. nalimutan na ang pagsipsip nila sa INC. biro mo sa manila lang ginawa ng INC yung activities nila, sinuspend na classes sa buong metro manila! laking kagaguhan nun, pero mga pulitiko kasi e, kaya kailangang magpalakas para makuha ang boto ng INC!

    the country is in ring of fire…a lot of volcanoes..I suspect Bohol’s so-called chocolate hills are created by geological formations motivated by magma underground….sad to say that Philippine Islands are really full of natural calamities…..not really because people are sinful…that is something else

    I’d say Jesus is angry with the priests.

      And with you, too.

      With all of us.

    • Pangasugan

      If so, then Jesus is STUPID and incompetent. He did not harm the priests but destroyed churches.

      • Hannibal

        Jesus was a good man but after he died people turned him into a stupid and incompetent god.

    The funds Enrile Jinggoy and Revilla stole could have been used to improve the structural support or renovation of those old buildings

    I told my daughter that a trip to Bohol would probably be one of our gifts to her after graduation this April 2014. So sad…we won’t be able to see or touch the church buildings as they were for centuries…

    Old Churches without steel rebars are dangerous! I hope they understand that, especially those built before 1930s.
