    A 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the southeastern coast of the Philippines around midday Saturday, local time, prompting fears of a tsunami. However, no tsunami was reported.

    The United States Geological Survey (USGS) initially rated the earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 before the rating was revised to 7.0.

    The temblor struck 52 miles (84 km) to the southeast of Pondaguitan, Philippines, with a depth of 37 miles (60 km), according to the USGS.

    No tsunami thankfully.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    One of my astronomy-profs once said: " Unfortunately, no-one is an expert in watching raison-cakes expand. "

    About that area of the Pacific Rim, I'd say 'unfortunately, no-one is an expert at watching super-volcanoes form'. But that area is starting to worry me a bit.

    The whole Java Sea could blow.

    SR, your headline frightened me. I immediately thought of Fla!
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault
