Minutes ago Philippines was hit by another earthquake this time in the Philippine Sea, 110 km southeast of Mati at a depth of 45.5km. The 5.3-magnitude earthquake was felt by a lot of people.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still 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 is believed to have been felt as weak shaking in Lukatan (pop. 2,600) located 105 km from the epicenter, Manay (pop. 20,300) 109 km away, and Mati (pop. 105,900) 122 km away.
