Azkals safe in Myanmar following the strong 7.0 earthquake

The Azkals have experienced the strong 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Myanmar just last night, March 24, 2011.

But thanks God, they're safe.

The Philippine Azkals who are still in Yangon, Myanmar for one more match in the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup Qualifiers are reported safe, courtesy of ABS-CBN reporter Dyan Castillejo who's also in Myanmar to cover the Azkals matches.

Azkals player Anton Del Rosario shared on Twitter that they were on the 9th floor of a hotel in Myanmar when the earthquake happened and had to rush down using the fire exit.

"Felt the earthquake in the hotel, thought it was vertigo lol," Anton tweets. "Team ran down 9 stories. Seems like quakes are following us!"

The Azkals were also in Japan when the 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the country last March 11, 2011.
