The tremor had a depth of 10 kilometers and was tectonic in origin which was caused by ground shaking primarily due to the sudden movement in the Earth’s plates, Phivolcs said.

According to the state seismology bureau, an instrumental intensity I was recorded in the municipality of Malungon in Sarangani town.

Phivolcs warned that while no damage may be expected from the quake, aftershocks are still likely.
