Magnitude-3.5 quake hits Negros Oriental

A predawn magnitude-3.5 quake struck Negros Oriental province Monday, nearly a month after a magnitude-6.9 quake devastated the area.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the quake was tectonic in origin and was recorded at 3:32 a.m.
In its bulletin, it said the quake’s epicenter was traced to 26 km northwest of La Libertad town.
La Libertad was among the areas that suffered great damage in the Feb. 6 quake.
However, Phivolcs did not immediately cite specific areas where the predawn quake was felt.
No damage or aftershock was expected from Monday’s quake, Phivolcs said. — RSJ, GMA News
