Mild quake jolts Zambales, Olongapo City

A mild earthquake this morning rocked Zambales, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

The epicenter of the tremor was located under the sea 20 kilometers southwest of Iba, Zambales, according to Philvolcs director Renato Solidum.

In a radio interview, Solidum said they recorded intensity 3 in the areas of Olongapo and Zambales while intensity 2 rocked Quezon City and Ortigas.

The nature of the quake was tectonic caused by slight movement of the plates, particularly the Iba fault and Manila trench.

Solidum said even a 4.1 magnitude quake is not strong enough to bring down structures.

The quake occurred at around 9:06 this morning. By Dennis Carcamo - PhilStar
