Update 13:06 UTC:  Local PHIVOLCS is, contrary to us, not expecting damage. They warn however for aftershocks.
Why are we mentioning damage possible ? Mainly because of the very shallow depth of the hypocenter. If your house is located in the direct vicinity of the epicenter, cracks are certainly a possibility.

Update 12:58 UTC:  Based on the present earthquake parameters (Magnitude, Depth, Population, etc) and our experience with earthquake damage impact, does expect at least some slight damage like cracks in walls, fallen tiles, etc.

Most important Earthquake Data:

Magnitude : 5.5

Local Time (conversion only below land) : Unknown
