A strong earthquake struck near the Philippine city of Davao on Sunday, killing a child, damaging buildings and causing several injuries, officials said, Reuters reported.

The magnitude 6.8 quake was centered 61 km southwest of Davao on the island of Mindanao, at a depth of 28.2 km, the U.S. Geological Survey said, revising down the magnitude from an earlier 6.9.

Vincent Fernandez, the mayor of Matanao town in Davao del Sur province, near the epicenter, said that a six-year-old girl had died after a wall collapsed on her.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tsunami threat from the quake, based on available data.
