The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reported on Wednesday morning that a series of earthquakes rocked some parts of Batangas.
KAMI learned that the quake was volcanic in origin and had a depth of 11 kilometers.
As reported by CNN Philippines, the epicenter of the magnitude 4.6 earthquake was in the town of Mabini.
Intensity III was felt in Bauan, Batangas; Intensity II was recorded in San Nicolas and Taal; while Intensity I was reported in the towns of Agoncillo and Lemery.
In a report by the Inquirer, another magnitude 4.5 and magnitude 4.3 earthquakes were recorded in Mabini earlier. Meanwhile, weaker quakes with magnitudes 2.0 to 3.8 were also felt in the same town.
The PHIVOLCS said that no damage was reported after the quakes. However, aftershocks are expected from the series of quakes.
As previously reported by KAMI, a month ago, the PHIVOLCS lowered the Taal Volcano to Alert Level 1.
Last January 12, the Taal Volcano erupted and it has affected thousands of families and caused millions-worth of damage. The ash emitted by the volcano reached its nearby provinces and even in Metro Manila.
