Earthquakes

Multiple earthquakes strike Philippines province - UPI.com
UPI reports: "A series of earthquakes struck the Philippines province of Batangas on Saturday, causing damages and leaving some areas without power. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology recorded the first tremor northwest of the city of Mabini at 3:07 p.m., followed by a second stronger quake at 3:09 p.m. with a 6.0 magnitude. No serious injuries were reported immediately. A third quake with a magnitude of 4.1 occurred almost two hours later at 4:43 p.m."

Comment: It sounds like the energy dissipated with the series of quakes rather than having one large quake. Still, 6.0 magnitude is a big quake, lucky there were no fatalities.
