Magnitude 5.4 quake rocks parts of Luzon, Metro Manila

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) A 5.4-magnitude earthquake of tectonic origin rocked parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila on Tuesday morning, the second tremor of such magnitude in three days, the chief of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

The quake was part of an “earthquake swarm” or series of tremors that started last Thursday, caused by the movement of the East Luzon Trough off the northeastern seaboard, Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum said.

Another quake happened this morning at around 10am. Luckily, i did not felt earthquake. Others have said that there really was but i did not believe them until I have read the news.

As what I could understand from the news, series of earthquakes should be expected as this tremors were a part of what we called “earthquake swarm”. Nobody should panic but at least we should be alert and ready all the time.
