Northern Philippines Hit by Strong Earthquake

MANILA A magnitude-6.2 earthquake hit the island of Luzon, in northern Philippines, although no casualties have been reported yet.

The quake struck at 1:28 pm, 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) to the northeast of Putol, some 73 kilometers to the south of Manila, at a depth of 168 km.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology put the magnitude of the quake at 6.3.

The Philippines is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, a region of high volcanic and seismic activity that is shaken by some 7,000, mostly moderate quakes.
