A 2.6-magnitude earthquake was detected just north of San Remigio yesterday morning.
According to reports, the tremor struck just before 12:30 p.m.
A subsequent Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology bulletin reported no damages nor were there aftershocks expected for the Antique town.
Last week, a 2.6-magnitude tremor also struck Caluya.
The quake was detected around 2:44 a.m. last Thursday with an epicenter located north of the Antique municipality.
Quakes ranging between 1.0 and 3.0 in magnitude are often classified as a Level 1 on the Mercalli Intensity Scale, where the tremor goes almost undetected./WDJ
