It first felt a 6.7 magnitude quake striking only twenty km below the earth’s surface. Later a 5.6, then 6.0 magnitude quake struck.

Most recently, local news reports two far more shallow quakes striking the same epicenter. Those have registered 5.8 and 5.2 magnitude respectively, USGS indicates to news.

The Philippines has experienced heightened quake activity since winter last year. A strong 5.7 magnitude Philippines quake struck in the Babuyan Island Region on January 15.

In July last year, a 6.0 earthquake struck the region. USGS at the time reported that the July quake earthquake had a depth of thirty-eight miles and was centered sixteen miles north west of Olongapo, Luzon. In September, a 5.0 magnitude quake struck, only eighty-six miles west of Manila.

    I’m in Cebu and the quake was strongly felt in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines. The earthquake was a jolting action, with sharp and quick shaking that lasted for about 30 seconds. Pretty scary actually, but no damage in Cebu.
