Mild quake shakes buildings in Manila
MANILA: A low-intensity earthquake struck near the Philippine capital on Wednesday and shook buildings across Manila, the government said.
There were no immediate reports of damage.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the quake had a magnitude of 3.8, and hit in Bulacan province about 50km to the north of Manila.
Phivolcs seismologist Ishmael Narag said on DZBB radio there were no immediate reports of damage but authorities had yet to get information from near the epicentre.
