A strong 6.2-magnitude earthquake rocked the region south of the Philippine capital, causing buildings in Manila to sway, seismologists said.

The authorities said they were checking whether the quake had caused any damage.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology told AFP the quake struck just off the coast of Lian, about 70 kilometres (43 miles) south of Manila at 1:28 pm (0528 GMT), at a relatively deep 173 kilometres.

 

The Philippine seismologists measured it at 6.1 magnitude while the US Geological Survey put it at 6.2.

We felt that while we were eating lunch in Angeles City... it was not very strong up there.. it was a weird one though. I have been in them before both here and in the US.. this one felt like I was on a boat... the people walking around never even noticed it.

6.1/.2 is a sizable quake if it were nearer the surface.
