albiladpress

A fresh earthquake hit the Philippines on Tuesday (Apr 23), even as rescuers scrambled to reach survivors from a strong quake a day earlier, Channelnewsasia reports. 

The latest temblor struck the southern Philippines at 1.37pm

The US Geological Survey (USGS) put the fresh quake at 6.4 magnitude, which is stronger than the one that wrought significant damage Monday near the capital in the north.

Authorities are assessing possible damage from the latest quake, which struck at a depth of 70km, but warned that residents should expect aftershocks.

Monday's quake struck northwest of the capital Manila on the main island of Luzon, killing at least 16 people and injuring more than 100.

Rescue teams are scrambling to reach about two dozen people feared buried under a building near Manila.
