Minutes ago a strong earthquake struck Mindoro, Philippines at an intermediate depth of 130km. An aftershock of a 5.6 magnitude struck minutes after.

As is usual, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

A lot of people located close to the epicenter of the quake most likely felt it. The quake was felt in Tingloy (pop. 2,600) located 14 km from the epicenter, Balayan (pop. 50,100) 31 km away, Balayan (pop. 50,100) 31 km away, Calaca (pop. 37,400) 31 km away, Taal (pop. 39,700) 31 km away, Batangas (pop. 237,400) 36 km away, Nasugbu (pop. 62,900) 47 km away, Calapan City (pop. 66,000) 55 km away, Manila (pop. 1,600,000) 108 km away, and Quezon City (pop. 2,761,700) 115 km away.
