Very strong dangerous earthquake in Leyte, Philippines - July 6, 2017
Update 09:05 UTC: This earthquake will normally NOT generate Tsunami waves as the Magnitude is not powerful enough (besides a couple of exceptions, the Magnitude needs to be at least M7 of higher)
Update 08:59 UTC: As you can see on the map below, powerful earthquakes are very common the Leyte region. They go up to M7.1
Update 08:56 UTC: On the positive side we have to mention that most of the houses are wooden houses which will have a lot earthquake resistance. This may decrease the potential damage a lot.
