A 5.2-magnitude earthquake strikes Philippines.

A day after Philippines was struck by a 6.4-magnitude earthquake, another quake occurred an hour ago in the South China Sea, 185 km west of Manila at a shallow depth of 10km. The 5.2-magnitude is most likely an aftershock of the previous earthquake.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

The earthquake was felt in several towns or cities close to the epicenter of the quake. This include Tagbac, Subic, Mariveles, ollong-gapo, Nasugbu and Balanga.
