Philippine Earthquake Update:
On Thursday, a 6.5-magnitude earthquake rattled the central Philippines, injuring a few dozen people. It also caused some damage about eight miles from Ormoc on the island of Leyte. BGR worked there in 2013 after the most intense cyclone in Philippine history, Cyclone Yolanda, struck the area and killed more than 6,300. The U.S. Geological Survey said people felt the quake strongest in the Leyte towns of Kananga and Jaro. Damage to a few buildings has been reported, but so far, no official numbers regarding damages, injuries, or fatalities have been released. BGR is assessing the need and will post updates as warranted.
