An earthquake struck the Philippines Thursday afternoon, reportedly collapsing a hotel in the town of Kananga.
According to eTurboNews, the earthquake collapsed a three-story pension house hotel in Kananga, which is in the Leyte province. Rescuers have recovered 10 people who were injured inside, and disaster management teams are continuing to search for anyone else possibly trapped under the rubble before night falls. Kananga is a small farming community in a mountainous region, and is home to nearly 50,000 residents.
According to The Independent, the US Geological Survey (USGS) measured the earthquake at 6.5 on the Richter scale. It was centered southwest of the city of Tacloban, and about 360 miles southwest of the capital, Manila.
CNN reports that the area around Tacloban was hit hard during Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the country in 2013. No tsunami warning has been issued due to the earthquake.
