A 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit southern Philippines on Tuesday at the expense of a male student who escaped from a classroom, causing a building to crack and injuring many in the area,  just over a week since a strong tremor jolted the same area and left seven people dead.

The quake’s epicenter was located inland northeast of Tulunan town in Cotabato province, 972 km (604 miles) south of Manila, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

The earthquake continued for a minute in several areas

Fearful locals fled to the road after the quake, which occurred in Mindanao when schools and offices opened Tuesday.

Earthquake continued for a minute in several areas, damaging homes, multistory buildings and classrooms in the region that saw many still homeless after the five-day earthquake earlier this month.

Philippines is frequently hit by earthquakes because it is located in the Pacific Rim.

A teenager was hit by a collapsed wall while trying to escape at his school in Magsaysay, a city spokeswoman said.

Although several other students were injured in the crash to save themselves, they were confirmed safe. The building is not just moving, it was shaking.

“I ask for God’s help”, said Dr Gadi Sorilla, at a hospital in Tulunan, a town 25 kilometers from the epicenter.

He said the hospital received 10 patients, some with head injuries.

Local authorities have received reports of a missing population, but are still working to confirm it.
