6.6 magnitude quake strikes southern Philippines

In Philippines, a 6.6-magnitude quake struck the southern part of the country today, rattling buildings and sending terrified locals fleeing into the streets.

The US Geological Survey said, the shallow tremor hit the island of Mindanao in the same region where a deadly quake struck earlier this month. However, there was no tsunami threat.

Philippine authorities said there were no immediate reports of injuries.

The Philippines is part of the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, an arc of intense seismic activity that stretches from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific basin.
