Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 27) — A magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit Lagangilang, Abra at 8:43 a.m. on Wednesday, prompting residents and workers in Luzon to quickly evacuate to safer ground.

Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvolcs) recorded Intensity 4 shaking in Quezon City, but residents in Metro Manila and other provinces also reported strong shaking in their area that lasted for several seconds.

Phivolcs warned the public that aftershocks and damage can be expected following the major earthquake.

“That’s a major earthquake. Anything larger than Magnitude 7 can be devastating,” Phivolcs chief Renato Solidum said.
