Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 2) — More than 300 aftershocks were recorded after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Davao de Oro Wednesday evening, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.

Phivolcs officer-in-charge Dr. Teresito Bacolcol said the agency has recorded 345 aftershocks as of 8 a.m. Thursday.

He noted, however, that only one of the aftershocks was felt.

"We expect that aftershocks would continue for several days or weeks," he said during a briefing Thursday.

Bacolcol also said there is no threat of a tsunami since the earthquake hit inland.

Phivolcs earlier said the epicenter was 12 kilometers north of New Bataan, Davao de Oro.

Meanwhile, National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council spokesperson Raffy Alejandro said the agency only received reports of minor damage, mostly to houses.
