Two earthquakes hit the Philippines
Two strong earthquakes struck the Philippines within 24 hours of each other. Both were reported to be tectonic in origin and independent of each other.
The first event was a 6.1 magnitude earthquake that rocked Central Luzon Island on Monday, 22 April 2019 which is the largest island in the country. The epicentre was located in Zamabales Province and it badly affected the surrounding areas of Subic Bay, Clark, Angeles City, Pampanga Province and the Metro Manila areas. It was felt within a 100 kilometre radius of the epicentre. Sadly there were casualties reported.
The second event was a 6.4 magnitude earthquake which occurred on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 in Samar Province, Eastern Visayas that jolted the neighbouring Province of Leyte and rocked Cebu and Bohol Islands as well.
Our Makati City adjusting team are now responding to claims for the Luzon quake and our Cebu City team are responding to claims arising in the Visayas Region.
