A dead oarfish measuring 3.2 meters was swept ashore off the coast of Barangay 19 in Gingoog City Thursday morning, August 20, 2020. The appearance of the deep sea elongated fish again sparked superstitious beliefs among locals in the area. Just a few days ago, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake rocked Masbate which was followed by a strong 5.8 aftershock.
