A six-year-old girl is dead after a strong quake hit the southern Philippines on Sunday, according to Reuters.

In northwest Padada town, Ricardo Jalad, who heads the Office of Civil Defence, said a three-story building collapsed as the ground shook and authorities were checking if people were trapped inside.

A strong quake jolted the southern Philippines on Sunday, prompting people to rush out of shopping malls, houses and other buildings in panic.

There was no threat of a tsunami, said the USGS, which initially reported the magnitude at 6.9. "Do we respond first or attend to our families first?", Allada told DZMM radio.

Officials in the southern cities of Davao and Cotabato, where the quake was felt strongly, suspended classes for Monday to allow checks on the stability of school buildings.

Several strong aftershocks were recorded after the main tremor, the strongest a magnitude 5.7 centred north of General Santos City.

Patients were evacuated from hospitals as a precaution and nervous crowds massed outside shopping malls after the powerful jolt and a series of smaller, but strong aftershocks.

Video footage posted on Twitter by users to portray the impact of the quake showed overhead electrical wires swaying and erupting in a shower of sparks. Another video showed water sloshing out of a hotel swimming pool. Reuters could not immediately verify the videos. There was no information if any people were inside or under the building.

The Philippines is situated on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", an arc of intense seismic activity that stretches from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific basin.
