In a separate interview, Department of Science and Technology Secretary Renato Solidum, who served as Phivolcs chief, said Intensity V was felt in Mercedes, Jose Panganiban in Camarines Norte.

Intensity III was also recorded in Manila and in Pasay City, he said.

“Dito sa Manila, sa Senate Intensity III although siyempre ‘yung mas mataas na floor ay mas malakas nang kaunti,” he said in an interview at the Senate.

(Here in Manila, in Pasay, an Intensity III was registered although those who were on higher levels in buildings felt it more strongly.)

“I don’t think there will be damage on intensities 5 or lower,” Solidum added.

Other intensities felt are as follows, according to the Phivolcs bulletin:
