The death toll has risen to 20 after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocks the central Philippines Tuesday morning.      The earthquake struck about 35 miles deep, below the town of Carmen on the island of Bohol Island.  It did not cause a tsunami in the seas around the island nation. The quake sent people rushing out of buildings and homes as aftershocks continued Tuesday.  However, offices and schools were closed for a national holiday, which may lower casualties. There are also reports of damage on the nearby island of Cebu, a province of more than 2.6 million people.
