Terrifying video shows rooftop pool emptying during huge earthquake

Video has emerged of a penthouse swimming pool emptying out in the wake of an earthquake hitting the Philippines.

A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit the country’s northern island of Luzon on Monday about 7.11pm (local time).

Manila resident Michael Rivo filmed a swimming pool pouring out from the top of the 53-storey Anchor Skysuites.

Residents are seen running and screaming as the building begins to resemble a waterfall.

Mr Rivo’s video have since been shared more than 131,000 times on Facebook.

“Hope no one went swimming with the water,” one woman wrote.

“Oh God. Hope no one got hurt,” another added.

Three people were killed when a supermarket collapsed in Porac town in Pampanga province, north of Manila.

Supermarket collapse leaves three dead

More than 31 people remained unaccounted for at the collapsed Chuzon supermarket, based on a rough accounting of its employees.

But some could have been elsewhere when the earthquake struck, Porac Councillor Maynard Lapid said.

Cr Lapid added two of the people killed were children while a survivor pulled from the rubble had to have his leg amputated to extricate him.

Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda told local radio station DZMM she had received reports the quake left at least eight people dead in her province, a rice-growing agricultural region, but could not provide further details.

The quake also damaged an airport terminal at former US Air Force base Clark freeport, an old Roman Catholic church in Pampanga, and caused cracks in highways and bridges, Ms Pineda and other officials said.

Clark airport was closed temporarily because of damaged check-in counters, ceilings and parts of the departure area, airport official Jaime Melo said.

She added seven people were slightly injured and more than 100 flights were canceled.
