Just minutes ago an earthquake was reported in the Philippines Sea, 69km Northeast of Tandag, Philippines at a depth of 10km.

This occurred just a few minutes ago, so the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

Weak shaking was probably felt in towns and cities located close to the epicenter. It was reported to have been felt in Cortes (pop. 3,000) located 65 km from the epicenter, Burgos (pop. 3,500) 65 km away, Tago (pop. 6,300) 68 km away, Tandag (pop. 29,000) 69 km away, Arrasasan (pop. 5,100) 70 km away, Cantilan (pop. 9,400) 88 km away, Dapa (pop. 8,800) 94 km away, and Socorro (pop. 9,700) 96 km away.

No reports of of damage, casualties or injuries. Significant damage to infrastructure is unlikely.
