Earthquake largest in over 80 years

The earthquake this morning was the strongest to occur on or close to Masbate Island in over 80 years.
A massive magnitude 7 quake struck at almost the same location on 29 Aug 1938, i.e. 82 years ago.
A similarly strong magnitude 6.5 quake had occurred on 13 Nov 1970 approx. 20 km NW of today's tremor.
Update Tue, 18 Aug 2020, 07:19

One person dead and several injuries confirmed

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Penology reported an even shallower depth of the quake: according to its data, it struck at only 5 km (3 mi) approx. 5 km SW from Cataingan town, the hardest hit area.
Interestingly, there seems to have been a foreshock, a 4.1 tremor that occurred several hours before the main quake. It might have saved lives as it prompted many residents of Cataingan to seek open grounds.
According to local press, the quake claimed at least one victim. A 63-year-old retired police officer was killed by a falling concrete beam. Several injuries were reported to have occurred as well. Unfortunately, it is possible that such numbers still rise as authorities are investigating the impact of the quake.
