The earthquake hit just off the eastern coast island at 10:37 p.m. local time around 20 miles below the surface, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

As a result of the earthquake, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has warned a tsunami could hit the southern Philippines as well as parts of Indonesia, Palau and Malaysia.

The Japan Meteorological Agency has also issued a tsunami advisory for Pacific coastal areas stretching from the Miyakojima-Yaeyama region to Chiba Prefecture, according to the New York Times.

Coastal residents of southern Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental provinces in the Philippines have been told to evacuate and seek higher ground, according to the Associated Press, citing the head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
