BREAKING: Deep, Strong Earthquake Shakes Philippines
Updated Friday 11 August 2017 10:9
A strong but deep earthquake struck the northern Philippines early Friday afternoon but caused no apparent damage. Office workers and students in the capital, Manila, briefly evacuated their buildings after feeling the moderately strong swaying and shaking.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said no damage was expected because the 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck at a depth of 160 kilometres (99 miles). Deeper epicentres often cause less damage at the Earth’s surface, though they can be widely felt.
The epicentre was 16 kilometres (10 miles) southwest of Batangas province’s resort town of Nasugbu, which is around 65 kilometres (40 miles) southwest of Manila.
