MANILA – A magnitude 5.2 quake jolted Davao Occidental on Wednesday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) reported.

The tectonic quake struck 318 km. southeast of Sarangani town at about 6:25 a.m. It had a depth of 79 km.

Phivolcs has not logged any reported intensities and instrumental intensities in its earthquake bulletin issued at 6:59 a.m.

Reported intensity is the traditional way of knowing the intensity based on reports by people who felt the earthquake.

Instrumental intensity, on the other hand, is measured using an intensity meter that measures ground acceleration.

Phivolcs said aftershocks and damage are not expected from the quake. (PNA)
