A 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook the Philippines on Thursday afternoon, killing at least two people and injuring dozens more.
The earthquake, which was centered in Leyte province, sparked landslides and knocked out power after a geothermal power plant was damaged. Four people remained missing on Friday.

About 17 miles outside of Kananga, a landslide hit a home, killing a young woman, Mayor Richard Gomez of Ormoc city told DZMM radio. More than 100 others were injured in the area.
