Philippines: A 6.5 magnitude earthquake struck under the Celebes Sea off the Philippines on Thursday, the US Geological Survey said.

The quake hit at 10:39 p.m. local time (1439 GMT) around 320 kilometers (200 miles) southwest of the city of General Santos on the island of Mindanao, at a depth of 528 kilometers, USGS said.

The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, based in Hawaii, did not immediately issue a tsunami warning following the earthquake. The Philippines is part of the Pacific's so-called "Ring of Fire", a zone of frequent tectonic activity where earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are common.
