On Wednesday, April 12, residents of Kalilangan in Bukidnon and Wao in Lanao del Sur were rattled by a magnitude 6.0 earthquake. As of 8am of April 13, a total of 170 houses were partially damaged in these two towns, 117 of which are in Wao.  The good news, no one was reported injured. Here are some pictures I took hours after the earthquake.
