    Huge earthquake hits Philippines
    A 7.3 magnitude undersea earthquake, measuring 617 km, struck southeast Philippines on Tuesday. The quake comes five days after a smaller tremor in the same area.

    An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 that struck under the Celebes Sea off the southern Philippines was far too deep to cause any damage or to generate a tsunami according to seismologists.

    Is it dangerous?

    The US Tsunami Warning Centre has issued no warning, advisory, watch or threat after the quake in the Celebes Sea, which lies in the western Pacific between Sulawesi and the Philippines.

    Seismologists said it was too deep to cause any damage and casualties or a tsunami. The Philippines Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has, however, warned of aftershocks.

    What caused the earthquake?

    Renato Solidum of Phivolcs said the quake was set off by the movement of oceanic plates 625 kilometers (387 miles) under the seabed. Solidum said the undersea quake was centered 223 kilometers (138 miles) southeast of Sulu province.

    A major earthquake measuring 7.2 struck off the coast of the island of Mindanao in the Philippines on Friday, raising the risk of tsunami waves as far away as Indonesia, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

    Hazardous waves could spread 300km (190 miles) away from the epicentre, which was in the sea south of the city of General Santos, the Center added.

    The U.S Geological Survey later downgraded the quake to 6.8.
