Published on : Wednesday, December 4, 2013

earthquakeAn earthquake rattled Davao Oriental province in Philippines on Wednesday morning. The earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale is not strong enough to trigger a tsunami, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.


Today’s quake is not related to the magnitude 7.2 quake that struck Bohol last October 15, Phivolcs executive director Renato Solidum was quoted as saying. He added, no tsunami alert has been raised so far.


The quake’s magnitude was initially measured by Phivolcs at 5.2.


Speculations are rife that a movement in either the Philippine Fault Zone or the Philippine Trench may have triggered the quake.
