The 6.5 magnitude quake hit the island of Mindanao, the US Geological Survey said, in the same area where a strong tremor killed at least six people on Tuesday.
An earthquake of magnitude 6.6 sent people scrambling as it shook buildings and disrupted power supply in the central area of the Philippines' southern island of Mindanao, killing at least two and injuring dozens, authorities said.
The US Geological Survey puts the magnitude of Tuesday’s quake at 6.4. At least 11 people were killed when a 6.1 magnitude hit the north of the country on Monday.
Indonesian authorities raise the volcano's alert status to the highest level following a "tremendous increase" in seismic activity. Its last eruption in 1963 killed 1,100 people.
