New Delhi, Dec 2: An earthquake of magnitude 7.6 struck Philippines on Saturday, following which alert for Tsunami was issued for the island and greater parts of Japan.

The jolt reportedly rocked the Mindanao area violently in the evening, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said.

The EMSC said that the quake was at a depth of 63 km (39 miles).

Following the quake, the US tsunami warning system issued a tsunami warning, which is expected to hit Philippines and Japan.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said based on the magnitude and location it expected tsunami waves to hit the Philippines, Indonesia, Palau and Malaysia.

Last month on November 17, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake rattled the southern Mindanao region. However, there were no immediate reports of casualties.
