It's just like Bitmoji if you will, but Gboard now gives the same functionality in-app without relying on a third-party, or Allo. The sticker can then be customized by changing the pose or expression and will be stored alongside your other stickers.

The mainshock was followed one minute later by a 3.4 aftershock.

Police and fire departments dispatched personnel to check for damage.

Seismologist Lucy Jones said the quake happened near but not on the Sierra Madre fault, describing the shaking as a "strike-slip motion". The magnitude 4.4 quake was the strongest natural disaster in the region in the past three years. "I was on the second floor of my office and suddenly everybody ran outside because of the quake", said an AFP reporter in Kupang.
