Mild tremor rocks North Luzon February 4, 2010, 7:16pm VIGAN CITY — An earthquake with intensity 4.0 strength rocked several towns of Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Abra, and Cagayan provinces Thursday morning. According to Jun De Peralta, chief of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) in Ilocos Sur, the mild quake occurred at 9:31 a.m. and was felt at Intensity 4 in Sinait, Ilocos Sur; Intensity 3.0 in Sto. Domingo and Vigan City, both in Ilocos Sur; and Intensity 2.0 in Laoag City and Pasuquin, both in Ilocos Norte, Bangued in Abra and Callao, Cagayan. De Peralta said the epicenter of the earthquake was 32 kilometers northeast of Bangued with a depth of 15 kilometers. The earthquake was tectonic in origin, meaning there was a sudden movement of rocks in the depth level of the soil. “This type of tremor, which lasted for 3 seconds, was not alarming in nature,” De Peralta said, adding that there was no reported damage or casualty from the affected areas.
