The tremor was also felt in Surigao City in Surigao del Norte province and Gingoog City in Misamis Oriental province, the institute added.
The institute said the quake, which was tectonic in origin, will cause no damage, but aftershocks are expected.
The Philippines has frequent seismic activity due to its location along the Pacific "Ring of Fire." ■
