MANILA - Residents of Wao, Lanao del Sur were forced to evacuate houses and buildings following a series of earthquakes that rocked parts of Mindanao early Sunday morning.

Photos from the Lanao Del Sur local government shows damaged walls and ceilings in some of the houses in Wao, where Intensity III was felt due to the magnitude 5.4 tremor.

Wao's district hospital was also damaged and patients were brought out of the structure to make sure they are safe from falling debris, as authorities continued to check the buildings.

Aside from the tremor in Lanao del Sur at 5:18 a.m., the town of Don Carlos in Bukidnon was also rocked by a magnitude 4.1 quake at 5:30 a.m.
