Earthquake jolted parts of Surigao del Norte

A magnitude 5.5 earthquake jolted parts of Surigao del Norte province before noon Wednesday, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvocs).

In its bulletin, the agency said the 10:32 a.m. quake had its epicenter at 104 kms northeast of Burgos in Surigao del Norte.

The tectonic quake had a depth of 33 kms -- meaning it was caused by the movement of the earth's crust.
