MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Thursday a 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck Cotabato province.

Philvolcs said at around 6:31 a.m. the tectonic tremor occurred, about 1.3 kilometers north-east of Tulunan town, with a depth of 1.0 kilometers.
Intensity 4 was reported in Kidapawan City, which could generate “moderately strong” shaking.
