Tsunami aims at Philippines after quake

From Yahoo News:
A powerful quake struck off southwestern Taiwan on Tuesday, triggering a potentially destructive tsunami that was headed toward the Philippines on the second anniversary of the deadly waves that killed thousands in south Asia.

The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of between 6.7 and 7.2, was felt throughout Taiwan. It swayed buildings and knocked objects off the shelves in the capital, Taipei.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

"There is a possibility of a destructive local tsunami," the bureau said. "However at some coasts, particularly those near the epicenter, higher tsunami may arrive."
