Two earthquakes hit Cebu

Two earthquakes were recorded in midwest Cebu on Tuesday dawn, according to Philippine Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).
Based on the advisory posted on its website, the Phivolcs said first tremor was recorded at 3:41 a.m. with a magnitude of 3.4 with the epicenter traced about two kilometers northwest of Asturias town, midwest Cebu.

The earthquake was tectonic in origin and had a depth of 15 kilometers.

The tremor was felt at Intensity three and two in Cebu City and LapuLapu City.

Two minutes later, a second earthquake occurred.

A stronger, magnitude 4.8 earthquake was recorded at 3:43 a.m with an epicenter at 4 kilometers northwest of Balamban town, which is next to Asturias.

The second quake was also tectonic in origin and had 25 kilometers in depth.

It was felt at Intensity three in the cities of Mandaue and Lapu-Lapu.

We felt it, and there have been at least 5 aftershocks. The smaller of the two largest shocks, the first one was located about 5 kilometers north of here. The second and strongest was 5 kilometers East of here and there was a large boom like an explosion associated with it. We don't appear to have any significant damage, but the experience from both was intense.

Certainly felt the two quakes here in Banawa.  The first went on for several seconds and gave the place a good shake.  The second came a few minutes later and was shorter and less intense.  No damage.
