Magnitude 5.2 quake jolts Abra 


A MAGNITUDE 5.2 earthquake rocked Abra province in northern Philippines on Sunday, according to the United States Geological Survey. 

The quake occurred 10 kilometers southeast of San Ramon Town at 2:27 a.m. and had a depth of 38.4 kilometers, it said on its website. 

The local state volcanology agency in a bulletin posted on its website said it was an aftershock of the 7.1 earthquake that struck the province last month, killing at least four people and damaging roads, bridges and historical sites. 

The towns of Pilar, Bangued and Bucay felt the quake at Intensity V, it said. Banayoyo in Ilocos Sur province and San Fernando in La Union province felt the quake at Intensity IV, it added. 

Intensity III was felt in Sinait, Ilocos Sur, while Intensity II was experienced in Gonzaga, Cagayan, Laoag City and Pasuquin in Ilocos Norte. 

The agency’s instruments also recorded the quake at Intensity I in Claveria and Peñablanca in Cagayan; Santiago City in Isabela; Tabuk in Kalinga; San Jose in Nueva Ecija; Urdaneta, Infanta and Sison in Pangasinan; and Madella in Quirino. 

Last month’s major temblor was also felt in Manila, the capital and nearby cities, forcing workers to evacuate buildings and halting train operations.
