MANILA (CBS SF) – A powerful earthquake struck the Philippines at 6:16 p.m. local time, 2 a.m. here in the Bay Area.

The 6.2 magnitude quake hit in the water directly west of Baywan City, some 360 miles south of Manila, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The tremor was recorded at a relatively deep epicenter, roughly 30 miles below the earth’s surface.

There have been no initial reports of damage or injury, likely due to the remote location.
