Bomb Explosion in Roxas Night Market, Davao City, September 2, 2016!

Yes, that’s today. There’s a sudden explosion here in Davao City. I thought it’s just thunder even it’s not raining, but it’s actually a bomb. I’m inside Marco Polo 5th floor when it happened. I didn’t see the explosion, but I see a lot of people along Roxas. The explosion happened at exactly 10:18 PM local time (GMT+8) according to the Marco Polo staff I’m talking with right now. I wasn’t able to take a video, but will share it in this blog once I found one online. Be safe everyone. Photo above by @jboygonzalessj of Check out his twitter of live photo and video updates.
