The 7.2-magnitude quake has hit the Mindanao island with early reports suggesting buildings have been damaged.

The quake will cause “hazardous waves” within 186 miles (300km) of the epicentre, according to the Pacific Tsunami Centre.

Indonesia and coastal regions of the Philippines could be affected by the enormous earthquake, as reports claim the tsunami waves could rock the region.

It was measured at a depth of 10km, 68km south of the city of General Santos, the Centre added.

A man who felt the earthquake tremors expressed their horror on Twitter and said: “That was the strongest earthquake i have ever experienced in my life. Magnitude 7.2.”

The Philippines lies on the so-called Ring of Fire, a region in the Pacific Ocean where many of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur.
