Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 7) — A magnitude-5.2 earthquake struck waters off Jose Abad Santos, Davao Occidental, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Wednesday. 

Phivolcs said the quake hit the area at 4:08 a.m.

The agency said it is not expecting any damage, but it noted aftershocks may occur.

It also said the quake with a depth of 102 kilometers was tectonic in origin, which means there was a movement in the Earth's crust.
