LAOAG CITY-–Two successive earthquakes jolted the northern town of Burgos in Ilocos Norte province early morning Tuesday, one registered at magnitude 4.2 while the other at magnitude 4, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.

The mild quakes, which struck at 4:17 a.m. and 4:31 a.m., respectively, went unnoticed as reports from Burgos town, 49 km from this capital city, showed that the community woke up unaware of the early morning ground shaking.
