Manila Earthquake Very Tiny

I was just thinking that this is as small an earthquake that can still make the news. The PGV on firm ground is around 1 cm/s. We'll assume it hits 10 cm/s on the soil basins. If we plotted the historical seismicity, it would be a giant splotch, since this is an extremely active area.
