Natural disaster of 6.3 magnitude strikes central Philippines - USGS

Strong earthquake shakes areas north of Philippine capital

Rescue workers search for survivors in a collapsed Chuzon Super Market in Porac, Pampanga, after a powerful quake hit northern Philippines on April 22, 2019.

Jaw-dropping footage has emerged of swimming pool water spilling out of a residential skyscraper after the Philippines was rocked by a magnitude 6.1 natural disaster.

A strong 6.3-magnitude natural disaster struck the Philippines island of Luzon on Monday afternoon, the US Geological Survey said.

"It's hard because there is no power, so we're still trying to get hold of a generator to be able to rescue the people inside", Lilia Pineda, governor of Pampanga province, told ABS-CBN television.

She said 20 persons have so far been rescued from the collapsed supermarket and brought to the nearest hospital. There were no immediate reports of injuries or widespread damage.

The Philippines' Department of Transportation earlier announced that operations at the airport would be suspended for 24 hours due to the damage.

The water reportedly sloshed out of a rooftop pool of the residential Anchor Skysuites in the Binondo district of Manila as the building swayed during the natural disaster.

Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda said that three others were killed after the 6.1 magnitude quake struck Castillejos, Zambales on Monday afternoon.

Emergency responders carry out an quake victim from a commercial building in Porac town, Pampanga Province, north of Manila, Philippines.

"We urge them to refrain from spreading disinformation in social media that may cause undue alarm, panic and stress", presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said.

The Philippines island chain lies along the edge of the Pacific "Ring of Fire" - a seismically active boundary surrounding the Pacific tectonic plate and its adjacent plates.
