Storyline


At least nine people were killed after a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck the Philippines' main Luzon island on Monday afternoon, according to local media.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) revised the magnitude of the earthquake to 6.1-magnitude from the earlier reported 5.7-magnitude.

Phivocls said the quake, which struck at 17:11 local time, hit at a depth of 12 kilometers, about two kilometers northeast of Castillejos town in northern Zambales province.

The earthquake severely damaged Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Manila, the country's capital. A Department of Transportation and Communications spokesman said that the airport's administration department suggested shutting down the airport for 24 hours for inspection and repairs.

The quake left some people trapped in a four-story building that collapsed in Porac, a town in Pampanga province in the central Luzon region, north of Manila. At present, a rescue mission to free them is underway.

The Philippine government has not officially released any casualty numbers.

The quake was felt in Metro Manila, prompting people to scramble out of buildings and houses. Several aftershocks were felt after the initial quake and was tectonic in origin.

James Hamilton, a foreign tourist, recalled the moment he felt the floor begin to move underneath his feet.

"First, I was getting out of the shower, and I couldn't work out why I was wobbling on the floor, like I lost my balance completely. And I noticed the view behind me from my window started to move, and that's when I realized something was wrong. And from there I could hear groaning sounds from my ceiling, my walls, all around me. And then the plaster of my ceiling started to come down. There was cracking which went from one end of my living room to the other end. And that's when I realized I have to get dressed. I had to stand underneath the door frame and try to take cover in case anything happens. And it lasted for about I would say 30 seconds to one minute. But it was pretty scary stuff," said Hamilton.

The Philippines, which lies along the Pacific Ring of Fire, has numerous active faults and trenches on both sides of the archipelago.

The geographic and geologic settings of the Philippines make the country prone to earthquakes. Phivolcs records an average of 20 earthquakes a day and 100 to 150 earthquakes are felt per year.
