Residents of Tandag city, Surigao Del Sur province in southern Philippines, flee to higher grounds Friday, Aug. 31, 2012, following a 7.6-magnitude earthquake that struck eastern and southern Philippines. The quake set off car alarms, shook items off shelves and sent many coastal residents fleeing for high ground before the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center lifted all tsunami alerts it had issued for the Philippines and neighboring countries from Indonesia to Japan, and for Pacific islands as far away as the Northern Marianas.
