PHIVOLCS rhad earlier recorded a Magnitude 4.1 quake, felt mainly in Mindoro and Batangas, originating from Mabini, Batangas - an aftershock of a 5.5 magnitude natural disaster on April 4.
A third quake with a magnitude of 4.1 occurred nearly two hours later at 4:43 p.m.
In Bauan, Batangas, the San Pedro Bridge sustained cracks, leaving only one lane passable while the road along Sitio Alembre in Agoncillo, Batangas is halfway passable due to landslide. Phivolcs described an quake with this intensity as destructive. The quake was felt the strongest in Mabini at intensity 7.
Phivolcs said Intensity 5 was documented in Batangas City, Sto. Tomas in Batangas and Tagaytay City.
A trio of strong earthquakes damaged buildings and caused panicked tourists to flee a popular dive resort near the Philippine capital on Saturday, officials and eyewitnesses said.
In Metro Manila, the quake was at Intensity 3. Daet, Camarines Sur felt Intensity 2. Other parts of Luzon, including MetroManila also felt the natural disaster in varying intensities.
Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology Director Renato Solidum Jr. said the first quake originated at the Batangas fault, while the other two quakes originated at the Manila Trench and were not related to the first. It was measured at 6.0-magnitude.
The first tremor last Saturday, measuring magnitude 5.6, was recorded at 3:07 p.m.
The tremors were widely felt because the earthquakes were too shallow - just between 24 and 27 km deep.

However, Phivolcs said the origin of the natural disaster is also near the local fault along Mabini, Batangas.

The quake also caused a seawall to collapse and the ground to rupture. "But if their houses were damaged by the quake, then that is when they have to get out of their homes", said Solidum.
Apart from the church, the municipal building also suffered a crack on the right side.
Hundreds of tourists and travelers were at the Port of Batangas when the tremors struck, forcing many of them to run to open spaces.
"We are also monitoring the Taal Volcano". In Batangas City, the Basilica of the Immaculate Concepcion Parish was also damaged.
Local officials, however, said the Basilica will immediately be inspected to ensure its safety, what with the expected convergence of people starting today for the Lenten season.
