Strong quake causes damage, injuries in southern Philippines
MANILA (REUTERS) - A powerful earthquake struck near the Philippine city of Davao on Sunday (Dec 15), damaging buildings and causing several injuries, officials said, the latest in a series of tremors to strike the southern part of the country in recent months.
The magnitude 6.8 quake was centred 61 km south-west of Davao on the island of Mindanao, at a depth of 28.2km, the US Geological Survey said, revising down the magnitude from an earlier 6.9.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there was no tsunami threat from the quake, based on available data.
