The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) traced the earthquake epicenter to four kilometers west of Sagbayan town.

Phivolcs said the earthquake was tectonic in origin, which means the tremor was caused by the movement of an active fault near the area.

The quake happened three days before the eighth anniversary of the Bohol earthquake.
