MANILA -- A strong but deep earthquake struck the northern Philippines early Friday afternoon and was felt in Manila.
Office workers and students in the capital briefly evacuated their buildings after feeling the swaying and shaking, but no damage was reported.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said no damage was expected because the 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck at a depth of 160 kilometres. Deeper epicentres often cause less damage at the Earth's surface, though they can be widely felt.
