An earthquake shakes the Philippine capital earlier today.
A magnitude of 6.0 struck the northern part of Manila but authorities said the quake leaves no damage or casualties. Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology chief Renato Solidum said the quake, with a magnitude of 6.0, struck around 1:29 early this afternoon.
Solidum added that the tremor was generated from the movement along Manila trench, which causes earthquake intensities that were felt around Metro Manila and surrounding provinces. He also described the quake as “moderate”.
The City of Manila was put on heightened alert after the tremor although the earthquake centered in Mindoro province.
