MANILA—A 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck North Cotabato late Thursday, Phivolcs said, a day after a 6.3-magnitude tremor hit the province and parts of Mindanao.

The tectonic tremor occurred at 11:05 p.m. approximately 22 kilometers (km) at a depth of 13 km northeast of Tulunan town, where the much stronger quake first hit.

Areas that felt instrumental intensities were:

  • Intensity IV - Koronadal City
  • Intensity III - Malungon, Sarangani
  • Intensity II - Tupi, South Cotabato
  • Intensity I - Alabel, Sarangani; Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental

Phivolcs said the temblor was an aftershock of the 6.3-magnitude earthquake that hit Tulunan earlier.

Damage to structures is not expected from the aftershock.
