BUTUAN CITY – A tectonic earthquake shook Agusan del Norte province anew, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs ) said.
However, the state agency said the series of earthquakes did not inflict any damage or injuries.
In its latest bulletin, Phivolcs said a 3.3 magnitude tremor was recorded at 5:48 a.m. Sunday (July 1).
The epicenter was plotted 5 kilometers (km) away from the town proper of Santiago, Agusan del Norte province.
The tremor had a shallow depth of only 1 km, Phivolcs said.
On Saturday (June 30), two mild tectonic earthquakes jolted Agusan del Norte.
The two earthquakes registered 2.1 magnitude and 2.2 magnitudewith epicenter traced to the municipalities of Santiago town and Remedios T. Romualdez, also of this same province, respectively.
Given the very shallow depth, these two tremors did not inflict any damage or injuries, Phivolcs and Agusan del Norte provincial disaster risk reduction and management council (PDRRMC) said.
Agusan del Norte Gov. Ma. Angelica Rosedell M. Amante-Matba alerted the personnel and rescue team of the PDRRMC.
