Dr. Mario Aurelio, Director of the National Institute of Geological Sciences at the University of the Philippines, said experts are in the process of pinpointing the faults causing the quakes.

The 3 earthquakes had a combined death toll of 23 with 2 others missing and 618 injured, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said. 

The Philippines straddles the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of intense seismic activity that stretches from Japan through Southeast Asia and across the Pacific basin. The archipelago tallies about 20 earthquakes a day, Phivolcs earlier said.
