Earthquakes have killed at least 16 people in the Philippines. The first earthquake struck northwestern Canada at 5:11 pm on April 22. Its epicenter was in Castillejos, Zambales province, about 100 km from Manila. The magnitude was measured at 6.1 by the USGS Institute.

More than 400 aftershocks were recorded within twenty-four hours of the earthquake. A powerful new shake, with a magnitude of 6.4, hit the country on April 23. The epicenter was in Tutubigan, on the island of Samar.

If the Philippines is particularly affected by this type of disaster, it is because the country is on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area where tectonic plates regularly collide. This causes frequent earthquakes and significant volcanic activity.
