MANILA - Two earthquakes were monitored off Sarangani town in Davao Occidental on Sunday afternoon, the Philippine Institute for Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.

A 4.6 magnitude quake was recorded 192 kilometers southeast of the town at 3:53 p.m while a 5.4 magnitude tremor was later monitored 201 km southeast of the town at 4:10 p.m.

No major damage was expected from both quakes, which were also unlikely to spawn aftershocks, Phivolcs said.
