Moderate quake hits Gensan

A 5.1 magnitude earthquake struck off General Santos City at 10:30 p.m. Thursday, the US Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

The undersea quake was located 265 kilometers east-southeast of the southern Philippine city at a depth of 35 kilometers.

The Philippines sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where continental plates collide causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
