Philippines, a 5(point)9-magnitude quake today rocked a central island still reeling from a deadly tremor last week.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the moderately strong quake struck Leyte island near Ormoc, a city of about 200,000
people at 9:41 am local time today. However, no damage or casualties reported said the USGS.

A 6.5 quake stuck the region on Thursday last week, killing two people and leaving 72 others injured.
