A M6.5 powerful quake has struck east of the city of Surigao, Philippines on February 10, 2017.
Although early indications state there is no major damage, the tremor sparks fears of people injured.
The 6.5 magnitude quake struck near the island of Mindanao in the Philippines at a depth of 10 km about 13km.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on its website there was no tsunami threat from the earthquake.
Tremors from the quake were reportedly felt in a number of nearby areas, including Philippines’ second city, Cebu City.
Today’s earthquake comes just weeks after a 7.7-magnitude tremor rocked the country.
The Philippine lies in the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, where earthquakes and volcanic activities are common.
In 2013, the Bohol province was hit by seismic activity that left 222 people dead and flattened thousands of homes.
And a magnitude 7.7 quake killed nearly 2,000 people on the northern island of Luzon in 1990.
