NEW YORK (BNO NEWS) — Three major earthquakes struck close to a Philippines island on early Saturday morning, seismologists said, but they were located too deep to cause damage or create tsunami waves.
The first earthquake, at 6.08 a.m. local time (2208 GMT Friday), had a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale and was centered about 100 kilometers (65 miles) southwest of Cotabato, a city located on the Philippines island of Mindanao. It struck about 604.5 kilometers (375.6 miles) deep, making it an extremely deep earthquake, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
