At least six dead, more than 100 injured in Philippines earthquake - UPI.com
UPI reports: "At least six people died and more than 100 people were injured when a
powerful earthquake rocked the southern Philippines late Friday,
knocking out power to thousands and damaging buildings.
The earthquake, centered near the city of Surigao, measured as a
magnitude 6.7. The quake was at a depth about 6.8 miles. Dozens of
aftershocks followed. Surigao is about 430 miles southeast of Manila and
has a population of about 140,000.
Officials said the number of dead and injured could increase as the
recovery efforts continue."
Comment: That was a big one, but it could have been much worse if it hit the capital or other highly populated area.
