MANILA - A magnitude 4.1 earthquake rattled Isabela province on Thursday, the Philippine Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said. 

No major damage was expected from the quake, which was also unlikely to spawn aftershocks. It struck at around 1:36 p.m. with the epicenter located 16 kilometers southeast of San Pablo town, Phivolcs said.

Intensity 3 was felt in Tuguegarao City in neighboring Cagayan province, said Phivolcs. Such an intensity may cause hanging objects to swing moderately.

The northeastern region is also bracing for Tropical Depression Odette, which is expected to slam Cagayan province Thursday night.
