Another powerful earthquake hit Mindanao on Sunday afternoon, leaving residents traumatized after experiencing the 6.9 magnitude temblor.

Still reeling from the series of strong earthquakes in October, the powerful quake brought massive damage in the region. At least 4 people were reported killed and several others still missing after a 3-storey building, which houses a grocery store, collapsed during the temblor. 

Rescuers rushed to rescue those believed trapped under the rubble after receiving calls for help.

Local authorities called for assistance, particularly for water, food blankets and temporary shelter to be distributed to residents affected by the earthquake.
