A magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook the south of the Philippine capital on May 12.
Earthquakes should be expected, but the earthquake, which occurred at a depth of 112 km, is unlikely to cause harm.
"Because it is a deep earthquake, it took place over a large area," said Renato Solidum, head of Phivolcs.
He also added that there was no threat of a tsunami.
The epicenter was reported in the province of Mindoro and was felt in the capital Manila.
