An hour ago a 4.5-magnitude earthquake struck the Philippine Sea, 45 km northeast of Tandag, Philippines at a depth of 39.8km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still 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.

The earthquake was listed as a magnitude 4.5 by the EMSC. No significant damage is expected. Weak shaking expected in Cortes (pop. 3,000) located 58 km from the epicenter, Burgos (pop. 3,500) 58 km away, La Paz (pop. 2,300) 61 km away, Mabahin (pop. 2,300) 62 km away, Tago (pop. 6,300) 62 km away, Tandag (pop. 29,000) 62 km away, Arrasasan (pop. 5,100) 64 km away, and Buenavista (pop. 2,600) 65 km away.
