A weaker earthquake at magnitude 2 later hit eight kilometers southeast of Catigbian at 5:07 a.m.

The twin earthquakes jolted Bohol just over a week after eight relatively weak quakes hit the province on March 25.

The strongest among the earthquakes was recorded at magnitude 4.5.

No damages were reported due to the series of tremors.
