Nearly an hour ago, Philippines was rocked by another earthquake. This time, a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck 25 km east of Magugpo Poblacion, Davao, Philippines at a depth of 38.7km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

Moderate shaking expected in San Mariano (pop. 18,700) located 20 km from the epicenter, Compostela (pop. 42,600) 28 km away, and Nabunturan (pop. 16,700) 30 km away.
In Magugpo Poblacion (pop. 233,300) located 40 km from the epicenter, New Corella (pop. 20,600) 42 km away, Monkayo (pop. 51,400) 45 km away, Mati (pop. 105,900) 53 km away, and Panabo (pop. 84,700) 55 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
