Metro Manila (CNN Philippines August 12) — A magnitude-3 earthquake hit Nasugbu, Batangas Saturday morning, an aftershock of the magnitude-6.3 that shook Luzon on Friday.

It was the first aftershock recorded by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).

The quake struck an area off Nasugbu, around 100 kilometers away from Manila, at 7:22 a.m., Phivolcs said.

It said the quake was tectonic in origin – or there was a movement in the Earth's crust – with a depth of 90 kilometers.

Phivolcs said that as of Saturday morning, no damage has been reported from Friday's tremor, which was felt at a "moderately strong" Intensity IV in many areas in Luzon.

It prompted people to evacuate buildings to find a safe zone, and several schools and offices to suspend classes and work.
