Two buildings collapsed after the tremors rocked the central of Philippines today, killing at least five people in the province of Pampanga.

Three bodies were found under a fallen building in the town of Porac, while another woman and her grandchild were pulled out of another tower-like structure in Lubao, provincial governor Lilia Pineda told Philippines TV station.

Witnesses reported buildings swaying after the earthquake struck Luzon on Monday afternoon.

The earthquake hit the city at 09.11 UTC time, striking at a depth of 40km just 60km northwest from Manila, the USGS said.

Thousands of people lined up the streets after authorities ordered mass evacuations across the country.

Local residents reported feeling shakes across Manila, Ususan Taguig City and Pampanga.

One witness said: “I did hear some glass breaking outside our house and there were other people screaming and frightened.

“I did have some experiences on earthquake occurrences but this might be the first time that I was terrified of what might happen to us. It was quite long actually and that made it even worse.”
