Our monitoring system located a second report from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), which also recorded the earthquake’s magnitude as 4.7.

Preliminary seismic data indicates that the earthquake should not have caused any serious damage, but it is likely that many individuals in the epicentre area felt a light vibration as a result.
