A tsunami warning has been issued for parts of the Philippines and Indonesia after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
The quake hit Mindanao, in the southern Philippines, and all coasts within 300km of the site are at risk of tsunami waves.
The Indonesian islands of Geme and Tabukan Tengah, and Davao in the Philippines could all experience the damaging waves within the hour.
Those living in the cities said they felt their houses shaking and heard rumbling noises.
‘I was watching Bird Box and suddenly I felt dizzy,’ a person in Butan City, more than 300km from the epicentre of the quake, wrote. ‘Next thing I know, people are shouting God’s name.’
There is no tsunami threat to Australia.
More to come.
