Strong Magnitude 5 Aftershock rocks Mindanao anew


According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), it said that a magnitude 5 earthquake was recorded in Tulunan town in Cotabato, the same area where the magnitude 6.6 earthquake hit a day before.


The strong aftershock woke up residents in different parts of Mindanao.

Yesterday's magnitude 6.6 earthquake was felt at a destructive shaking that feels like intensity 7 around the epicenter.

That earthquake left at least 5 people dead and thousands injured, according to a report from CNN.


An aftershock is a smaller earthquake that follows a larger earthquake, in the same area of the main shock, caused as the displaced crust adjusts to the effects of the main shock.
