An undersea 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit the southern Philippines on Saturday morning but it was too deep to cause any damage, officials said.
No tsunami alert was issued, said the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, based in Hawaii.
The quake hit the Moro Gulf off Mindanao Island at 7:15 a.m. (2315 GMT), the U.S. Geological Survey said. It said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.4 but the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology later reported a 6.9 magnitude.

Art Bell is on for George Snorey tonight, I think he’s back in the Philippines.. hopefully, he’ll have a local update,
Three major quakes rattle Philippines
MANILA (AFP) Three major quakes measuring between magnitude 7.3 and 7.6 hit the southern Philippines early Saturday, seismologists said, but there were no reports of damage and no tsunami warning was issued.
The underwater quakes struck at a depth of between 575 and 605 kilometres (350 and 375 miles), just over 100 kilometres southwest of Cotabato, on the island of Mindanao, said the US Geological Survey.
The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said no destructive tsunami was generated by the 7.3-, 7.6- and 7.4-magnitude quakes, the first of which hit at 6:08 am (2208 GMT Friday).
“It was kind of mild,” said Monisa Tulawie, a staff member at the Cotabato city mayor’s office, who told AFP she felt one of the quakes.
Thanks for that story!
It’s in Mindinao which is good because it is infested with Muslim jihadis living there. They are currently engaged in a guerrilla war with the Philippine government over control of the island.
Thanks for keeping your Earth Quake ping shakin’.
I think I am clued in to you only get “active” with the large richeter size and aftershocks or perhaps a lil one that caused havoc..
Whatever as an old Freeper (not so much an internet person at times now a day..unless) I/we appreciate your decade of “Earthquake Ping”
*has it been a decade? who cares, many years ping*
You’re welcome Global2010! And thank you very much for your kind note to me. I have been offline a few weeks because my modem blew out during an ISP crash.
I hope that you and King Vanity are doing okay. I am keeping you both in my prayers.
The woman who was my guardian (I spent allot of time in SW Samar) growing up is supposed to be in PI (North of this EQ Island wise) as we type.
She still wants me to marry the 2nd cousin (no blood to my Irish/Swede) in her family.
Ahh nothing like a “green card” and “rooster fights” in the driveway. /sarc
IIRC Art is in the North PI...
Long way away from Tagalog.
Hell it has always been.
Back atcha for those daily lifting up of intentions/grief/sufferings/service.
Lord knows... hears us.
My heart to yours.
Peace be with you.
I have been eating beefsteakers/lemon cukes and more good farmed foods.
For over a week.
(hint too. I got sick as in forgot to eat fat/protein and lost my land legs untill I did get a bit of beef rib eye )
Well pinging you ( I think your on bd’s list right?).
The Earth has been platonically adjusting this week.
I saw a few normal shakers on the map at your place.
What is so unhealthy is every point in the world is getting pinged.
Except Juan off our coast.
I will take that as a well adjustment on the crust so our area needs “none”.
As a medical prepper we are good.
Ammo as needed. KV care awesome and our other needs.
They are selling flats of blackberries for way too much mula.
I will wait for the natural briars to produce in fall.
I like ‘em (as do the doggies) right off the stem bugs and all.
I have revived my cooking with the touches of Anthony Bourdains No Reservations travel/food show idea.
Simple put it all (fruit/veggies inseason) on one plate with dipping juice on the side.
Sorry I thing I just went off topic.
Just gotta ‘nother USGS ping.
I wonder if they are even feeling a shake.
I have not looked at an depths/off shore locations.
We have a Freeper or two that are PI ex pats but I don’t believe (don’t know) if they are that far down South and makes a big dif if on the East side of the Islands or West side.
Do you have any recollection of the number of 7.0 and above quakes totalling 9 recently???
This link should be helpful. It has a list of world-wide earthquakes in the last 7 days:
There have been three greater than 7.0 magnitude earthquakes world-wide in the last week.
And this link has earthquakes for the last 8 through 30 days:
I only saw one above 7.0. So four total worldwide above 7.0 in the last 30 days.
