The OCD also said that no major interruption in communication, power, and roads were reported.

The civil defense office said that it provided help to affected communities and that search and rescue teams were on standby.

The Philippines is regularly rocked by quakes due to its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, an arc of intense seismic activity that stretches from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific basin.
