Renato Solidum of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the tremor was sufficiently solid to wake resting individuals. 

"In any case, we don't expect critical harm," because of its profundity, he told DZMM radio station. 

A milder delayed repercussion was recognized not long after the primary tremor, the organization said. 

The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no tidal wave risk from the solid shake. 

In its preparatory effect appraisal, the USGS said there was a low probability of setbacks and harm from the tremor. 

The Philippines is frequently hit by shakes because of its area along the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where structural plates impact.
