All I saw on the news here was the bell tower of the Basilica collapsed, the roof of the fish market killing or injuring a few. State of calamity in Cebu and Bohol.

I suggest you contacting your travel agent / driver if you are going to Bohol for a tour.

Some roads and bridges are badly damage and transport may be an issue.

Going to panglao isn't a problem. Going east to loboc is a big problem. You can only go as far as baclayon because of fallen bridges. Westward, only up to cortes town. Same problem, fallen bridges and boulders of rocks. HTH

I don' t plan to go to Panglao now. May be just small islands near Mactan island like caohagan island. But since still close to bohol, a lot of concerns :(

Don't worry about your island adventure. If a major earthquake happen it will take decades or even longer before it happen again in the same place just like in Kobe, Haiti and San Francisco.
