Note: the PTWC did not expect a Pacific-wide tsunami as a result of the quake and no warning was issued.
According to Benito Ramos, head of the Office of Civil Defense, a child there died when a concrete fence of a house collapsed. Due to the aftershocks, it was too dangerous for authorities to search buildings, so the number is expected to rise.
