Still to early to determined how many were killed but there are reports of people trapped in the rubble. There is no tsunami alert thank goodness.


A strong quake shook the southern Philippines on Friday, killing at least three people, toppling buildings and sending panicked residents fleeing their homes, media reports and authorities said.

The 6.5-magnitude earthquake knocked out power in the city of Surigao, more than 700 kilometres southeast of the capital Manila, and an unknown number of people are believed to be trapped in rubble.

At least seven people were injured by falling debris in the quake which the US Geological Survey said struck at a depth of 27 kilometres at 10:00 pm (1400 GMT).

MANILA, Philippines - (UPDATE 2, 12:30 P.M.) At least four people died and more than 80 others were wounded, 13 seriously, when a 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck Surigao City late Friday, shutting down the airport and knocking power in two towns, the provincial governor said. Gov. Sol Matugas said engineering teams were scrambling to fix alternative routes as three bridges were also damaged, and worried that the province had been cut off by the damage to the airport runway, which forced its closure to commercial planes. Two flights from Manila head for Surigao and back daily, by Cebu Pacific and PAL Express. Matugas confirmed only helicopters can land at Surigao airport. The provincial capitol was partly damaged, with a portion of the ceiling collapsed. Four people were dead on arrival in hospital, and 81 rushed to emergency rooms, of whom 13 were admitted for serious injuries, Matugas told DZMM.
