Earthquake measuring 6.2 on Richter scale hits Australian neighbor – as authorities evacuate building and ceiling lights shake
A ‘staggering’ earthquake has hit an island in the Philippines, forcing buildings to be evacuated.
The earthquake struck Mindoro province, in the northern Philippines, at 10:19 am local time on Thursday and had a magnitude of 6.2, according to Geoscience Australia.
The tremors were felt in the capital Manila, about 100 km north of the island, causing three elevated railway lines to be suspended for the time being. Reuters.
