Two tectonic earthquakes shook some parts of the Visayas this morning but did not cause any damage, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.
Phivolcs said the first quake of magnitude 4.4 hit at 2:21 a.m. and was centered at 59 kilometers southeast of Catarman, Northern Samar.
The tremor, caused by a movement along the Philippine Trench, was felt at Intensity 2 in Borongan, Eastern Samar, it said.
The second quake of the same magnitude, meanwhile, struck at 6:15 a.m., with its epicenter traced at four kilometers southeast of Naval, Biliran Island. Helen Flores
