Additional Information: "In the letter from Lake Mainit of Surigao by Jesuit Missionary Antonio Chambo to the Mission Superior on July 13, 1879 (Jesuit Missionary Letters from Mindanao, Volume V: The Surigao Mission [1990]), he wrote: "Although houses and trees fell, they caused nothing except the fright following such a natural phenomenon repeated with less strength 10 or 12 times in 24 hours. The land cracked in certain spots more than four varas and leaving deep holes, on others on vara. One of the points of the lake closest to the village has completely disappeared and where there was once a nice beach for fishing, it is now as deep as the center of the lake."
