A strong magnitude 7.2 earthquake rocked Davao Occidental Saturday morning, prompting government seismologists to issue a tsunami advisory.

According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, the earthquake struck at 4:23 a.m. in the municipality of Sarangani, Davao Occidental.

It had a depth of 57 kilometers and was tectonic in origin.



“Sea level disturbances such as strong currents and rapid rise and fall of seawaters are expected,” Phivolcs said in an advisory.

It advised concerned public to be alert for unusual waves.

Coastal areas in provinces facing the Celebes Sea are expected to experience wave heights of less than one meter above the normal tide levels, said Phivolcs in the same advisory.

It also said that the first tsunami waves were expected between 4:28 a.m and 5:23 a.m and that it may continue for hours.

Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum said in an interview with DZMM radio that tsunami waves of less than one meter did not require evacuation of residents.

Intensity 5 was felt in General Santos City; Koronadal City; Santa Maria, Jose Abad Santos, Don Marcelino, Balot Island, Davao Occidental; Polomolok, Tupi, South Cotabato; Alabel, Malapatan, Glan, Sarangani; and Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat.

oo naramdaman din namin yung last thur, 1 sec lang pero malakas.

nakaka-worry ang pagdalas ng mga lindol ngayon - first time ko yata nakaranas ng madalas na aftershock sa buong buhay ko kesa dati.

6.5-magnitude quake rocks Visayas

A powerful 6.5 earthquake rattled the central Philippines Thursday at 4:03 p.m. , seismologists reported.

The quake centered eight kilometers southwest of Jaro town on Leyte Island, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

There were no immediate injuries from the inland tremor that hit at a shallow depth of two kilometers.

Phivolcs said that damage was expected from the quake.

The agency said no tsunami warning was raised.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council reported that a brownout is being experienced in Tacloban City and Palo, Leyte.

In a radio interview, Leyte Gov. Leopoldo Dominico Petilla said the quake hit the mountain area that separates Canhadugan and Ormoc City.

He said he received reports that some buildings were damaged, adding that the quake also caused cracks on some roads in Valencia, Ormoc City. He said they are still verifying these reports.

The US Geological Survey initially placed the magnitude at 6.9.

It was felt in the following areas:

Intensity VI: Jaro and Kananga and Capoocan, Leyte
Intensity V: Palo, Leyte; Tacloban City; Cebu City; Mandaue City; Ormoc City
Intensity IV: Catbalogan City; Cabucgayan and Naval, Biliran; Tolosa and Bato, Leyte
Hinunangan, Southern Leyte; Sagay City, Negros Occidental; Burgos, Surigao del Norte;
Biliran, Leyte
Intensity III: Bogo City and Talisay, Cebu; Roxas City; Iloilo City; Bacolod City; Inopacan
and Baybay, Leyte; Sogod, Southern Leyte; Calatrava, Negros Occidental; Tagbilaran
City; Jagna, Bohol; Borongan, Eastern Samar; Guihulngan City and Tayasan, Negros
Oriental; Cadiz City and Toboso, Escalante, Negros Occidental
Intensity II: Libjo, San Jose, Cagdianao, Dinagat Islands; Sorsogon City; Lapu-lapu City;
San Juan, Southern Leyte; Javier, Leyte; Tansay and Sibulan, Negros Oriental; Sorsogon
City
Intensity I: La Carlota City, Negros Occidental; Catarman, Northern Samar

Based on the Phivolcs Earthquake Intensity Scale (PEIS), intensity V is strong and generally felt by most people indoors and outdoors. Strong shaking and rocking is felt throughout a building where hanging objects swing violently and dining utensils clatter. Small, light and unstable objects may topple over while liquids could spill from open containers. Vehicles can be observed to rock.

Intensity IV is moderately strong and may be felt by some people indoors and outdoors. The vibration felt is similar to that of a passing heavy truck and hanging objects swing considerably.Dinner, plates, glasses, windows and doors rattle while floors and walls of wood framed buildings creak. Standing motor cars may rock slightly while liquids in containers are slightly disturbed. A rumbling sound may sometimes be heard.

Intensity III is described as weak and is felt by people indoors, particularly those in the upper floors of buildings, and dizziness and nausea may be experienced by some. The vibration felt is similar to that of a passing light truck and suspended objects may swing moderately.

The Philippines sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where continental plates collide causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity.
