A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the central Philippines on Tuesday, killing at least 93 people as of 9:05 a.m. EDT. Several buildings have collapsed, including historic churches.

The quake, whose epicenter was located near Carmen town on the island of Bohol, 390 miles south of Manila, hit around 8:12 a.m. local time (12:12 a.m. UTC). People spilled out onto the streets in a panic, according to a report from the Associated Press. The quake caused extensive damage on the islands of Bohol and Cebu.

At least 65 deaths were reportedly caused by collapsed structures and landsides, according to Reuters. Roads and bridges throughout Bohol were damaged or rendered completely impassable due to landslides.
