LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Philippines earthquake today has struck south of Manila. The strong Philippines earthquake today is the latest in a series of temblors to strike the country since Sunday, officials confirm to news. No reports of injuries have yet to be detailed by local news.

A half-dozen strong Philippines earthquakes today struck the county shortly around dinner time. The strongest quake, however, was a 6.0 magnitude quake that struck shortly after 6 pm local time Monday February 6, 2012. The quake had a nominal depth, USGS reports to news. It registered only nine miles below the earth’s surface. The quake as a result was felt across a wide area of the country.

It first felt a 6.7 magnitude quake striking only twenty km below the earth’s surface. Later a 5.6, then 6.0 magnitude quake struck.

Most recently, local news reports two far more shallow quakes striking the same epicenter. Those have registered 5.8 and 5.2 magnitude respectively, USGS indicates to news.

The Philippines has experienced heightened quake activity since winter last year. A strong 5.7 magnitude Philippines quake struck in the Babuyan Island Region on January 15.

In July last year, a 6.0 earthquake struck the region. USGS at the time reported that the July quake earthquake had a depth of thirty-eight miles and was centered sixteen miles north west of Olongapo, Luzon. In September, a 5.0 magnitude quake struck, only eighty-six miles west of Manila.

Finally in December last year, a 5.3 magnitude quake struck the Mindoro, Philippines region. The quake was roughly thirty-five miles west of Calapan and forty-six miles south of Batangas.

    I’m in Cebu and the quake was strongly felt in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines. The earthquake was a jolting action, with sharp and quick shaking that lasted for about 30 seconds. Pretty scary actually, but no damage in Cebu.
