Whole Lot of Shaking

The ring of fire is really active these days. I've sort of become weary of posting reports on Quskes in Indonesia because they have been happening every few days. Now the Philippines are shaking.

Earthquake hits S Philippines

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit the waters 209 km southeast of Mati, Davao Oriental in southern Philippines, Monday night, said the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

No casualty or injury has been reported so far.

The earthquake occurred at 21:46 local time (1346 GMT) and was tectonic in origin and shallow with 10 km from surface.

The earthquake was felt in Butuan City and Bislig in Surigao del Sur, San Francisco in Surigao del Norte, Davao City, KidapawanCity and Casteel in Davao Oriental.
