Moderate Quake Shakes The Philippines

A moderate earthquake shook the Philippines' main island of Luzon on Tuesday. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Buildings across Manila shook for several seconds. Panicked residents ran out into the streets, including some staffers at the Malacanang presidential palace and workers in the capital's Makati financial district.

The quake had a magnitude of 6.0, upgraded from a preliminary estimate of 5.8 with an epicenter 120 miles north-northwest of Manila and at a depth of 38.8 miles. The Philippine archipelago lies along the Pacific Ocean's "Ring of Fire," where volcanic activity and earthquakes are common.
