At least seven people were killed and dozens more were left injured after back-to-back earthquakes struck the northern archipelago region of Batanes on Saturday.
Footage shows a damaged structure at the Santa Maria church in Ityabat, with a large fragment of what appears to have been a bell tower on the ground in front of the base of it.
According to reports, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck the area, followed by another 4.5 magnitude earthquake 20 minutes later. Volunteers and rescue workers are reportedly still digging through rubble of collapsed buildings in hopes of finding survivors.
