Cracks could also be seen on tiles and on the floor of the resort, known for its Santorini-inspired architecture.

Roads in Barangay Pagkilatan, Batangas City, were rendered impassable after boulders from a landslide ended up blocking them.

The first quake hit 2 kms east northeast of Bagalangit village at 3:08 p.m., with a magnitude of 5.7, the United States Geological Survey said.

A 5.9-magnitude temblor hit a minute later, 1 km south southwest of Talaga, also in Mabini town, the USGS added.

The provincial government has yet to issue a statement on the total amount of damage the province incurred due to the quakes.

The temblor was felt around Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon, according to netizens' reports online.
