MANILA -- A small earthquake shook buildings in the Philippine capital of Manila on Wednesday but caused no damage, the government said.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the quake had a magnitude of 3.8, and hit in Bulacan province about 50 kilometers (30 miles) to the north of Manila.

“We are not expecting any damage. We also have no reports of any casualties,” civil defense chief Benito Ramos told AFP.
