Philippines-Several earthquakes shake Visayas on Sunday

 Central Visayas was awakened by a 5.1-magnitude earthquake at 4:40 a.m. on Sunday. The state seismologists said its epicenter was located in Tagbiliran City, the same epicenter of the Tuesday's quake that killed more than 150 individuals.

State seismologists from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said that these tremors were aftershocks from the Tuesday quake. They have recorded more than a thousand aftershocks after the magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Bohol.

Lapu-lapu City felt Intensity 4 while Iloilo City felt Intensity 2.
