MANILA (2nd UPDATE)- A magnitude 4.3 earthquake struck Camarines Sur Thursday night, according to Phivolcs.

The Phivolcs earlier registered the quakes as magnitude 4.2.

The tectonic quake occurred at 10:08 p.m. approximately 1 km northwest of Canaman town and struck at a depth of 7 km.

Intensity 6 was registered in Pili, Camarines Sur, while Intensity 5 was experienced in Sipocot town.

Intensity 3 was logged in Iriga City while Intensities 2 and 1 were experienced in Legazpi City, Albay, and Mercedes, Camarines Norte, respectively.


A CCTV camera inside the Our Lady of La Porteria Parish in Calabanga town showed the church shaking, prompting parishioners to leave.

Residents in Naga said the tremor lasted seven seconds and sounded like a "big truck traversing on rough road."

No aftershock is expected although damage is likely from the quake, the agency said.
