Good day maam/sir! I'm Geron R. Abon studying Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in University of Southern Mindanao. I would like to request time history data of an earthquake that struck the province of North Cotabato, Mindanao on October 2019. If none, any time history data in North Cotabato would suffice.
