PASUQUIN, Philippines, March 20 (UPI) -- Seismologists said an earthquake that rocked the northern Philippines Sunday had a magnitude 6.0 but the tremor did not prompt a tsunami warning.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology measured the shaker at 6.1, and the U.S. Geological Survey called it a 6.0.

There were no reports of any damage or injury in the area, including the town of Pasuquin, which was about 73 miles south of the epicenter.

The Philippines Daily Inquirer said the quake was the second in the area in less than two weeks. A 5.2 temblor rolled through March 10.
