Breaking: Powerful 6.2 Earthquake Rocks Philippines, Leaving Devastation in Its Wake!

A Quake Strikes the Philippines

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit the Philippine’s Calatagan town on Thursday but the US Geological Survey confirmed there were no immediate reports of damage. The quake struck deep in the Earth’s crust, 112km down, and caused police and residents to take shelter outside as buildings shook.  
“It was a bit strong. We had to run outside,” said Calatagan police chief Emil Mendoza in an AFP report.
Calatagan disaster officer, Ronald Torres, claimed that the quake lasted between 30 seconds and a minute with the state seismological service warning of aftershocks, but declared the earthquake had been too deep to cause tsunamis.
Although there were no injuries or damages reported, disaster authorities were dispatched to assess the earthquake’s aftermath. The quake was felt in various parts of the country, causing Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s runway and taxiways temporarily to close. Operation of public metro systems stopped while tracks were scrutinised for impairment. 
The Philippines is situated along the “Ring of Fire,” an area renowned for severe volcanic activity and famous for experiencing many earthquakes. In October 2013, Bohol Island experienced a magnitude 7.1 earthquake that resulted in landslides, killing over 200 people and causing significant damage.
