An earthquake of magnitude 7.9 hit 139km east of Sulangan, Samar, 8:45 p.m. Philippine Time, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

The USGS summary placed the epicenter of the earthquake in the sea just off the coast of Samar.

Meanwhile, the US' National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a tsunami warning for Indonesia and the Philippines immediately after the earthquake. — with Reuters/TJ Dimacali/VS, GMA News

Felt it here in Cagayan de Oro, not that strong but it lasted for more than a minute if I'm not mistaken.

Hope everyone is ok, seems internet connection and mobile services got affected. Took me awhile to send a text awhile ago.
I just learn that they already issued a tsunami warning for all coastal towns in Samar, Leyte and Surigao.

BREAKING (UPDATED 11:26PM): Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reports tsunami warnings LIFTED for Philippines, Indonesia, Belau/Palau as of 10:54 PM.

However, even though PTWC lifted its warning, evacuation alerts are still operational at this time. Citizens advised to stay alert for advice from NDRRMC.

PTWC says that only national and local governments are authorised to make decisions regarding official state of alert in their areas.

 :) well this is one of the dilemma if the air bases concentrated in luzon, there are no immediate response to affected areas, or for an immediate monitoring of the seas for a threat of tsunami....anyways the earthquake reaches up to iloilo with a strength of 4 to 5......hoping there are no further damage in the property......
