"I felt it" reports:
Liloan, Cebu / MMI IV (Light shaking): My family and I were awoken by a sudden quake, the shake moved sideways so when my brother tried to stand up to go to the bathroom, he lost his balance and fell to the floor. After a few minutes, it was followed by another quake. That was the time everyone in the room got up and ran downstairs.
Talavera toledo city / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Linog
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
