Palestina, Camarines Sur, Bicol (5.6 km W of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / rattling, vibrating / 1-2 s : So weak I wasn't sure it was a quake, but as I see it listed, and I did feel something at that time, that must have been it. Extremely weak, though. It felt like a bus crossing some railroad tracks at a smooth crossing. | One user found this interesting.
