MANILA, Philippines (AP) - A 7.2-magnitude earthquake has struck in the central Philippines, killing at least four people and collapsing and damaging buildings.
The Tuesday morning quake was centered 35 miles deep below Carmen town on Bohol Island and was felt across the region.
Radio station DZMM quotes civil defense officials as saying that four people died when part of a fish port collapsed in nearby Cebu city, across the strait from Bohol.
TV stations report the roof of a market in Cebu province also collapsed, injuring 19 people. People rushed out of buildings and homes, including hospitals as aftershocks continued.
Bohol's governors says a church was reported damaged in the provincial capital and a part of the city hall collapsed, injuring one person.
Earthquakes are common in the Philippines, which lies along the Pacific "Rim of Fire."
