earthquake Indonesia - 7.6 magnitude

An earthquake of 7.6 magnitude struck off the Philippines on Friday destroying roads and bridges. A lot of people moved to higher areas because of tsunami warnings.

The quake was centered off the east coast, 91 miles (146 km) off the town of Guiuan.

The region has been hit by devastating quakes in the past decade. Last year, an earthquake and tsunami off Japan’s northeastern coast happened and a quake and tsunami rocked Indonesia in 2004.

Luckily there are no reports of anyone being hurt so far.
