6.2-Magnitude Earthquake Hits West of Manila

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine seismology institute says a 6.2-magnitute earthquake has struck west of the capital, Manila.

Buildings in Manila shook for about 30 seconds early Thursday afternoon. Many workers ran out of their offices.


There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.
Seismology institute Director Renato Solidum says the quake happened at a depth of 6.21 miles (10 kilometers) under the seabed. The U.S. Geological Survey put the magnitude at 6.1 and depth at 21 miles (33 kilometers).

Well, this is some disturbance in our boring Thursday afternoon. Employees from upper floors of our office building are having fun outside. Hope there's no more quakes to follow.
