The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has recorded a 4.7-magnitude earthquake in Antique province on Tuesday morning, Aug. 9.

Phivolcs said the quake struck 16 kilometers (km) southwest of Anini-y, Antique at 10:52 a.m., with a depth of 18 km.

It was felt at Intensity IV as a “moderately strong” tremor in the municipality of Anini-y.
