MANILA, Philippines - A moderately strong earthquake jolted parts of Bohol and Cebu yesterday, but the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The tremor of magnitude 3.5 struck at 6:46 a.m. with its epicenter traced some seven kilometers southeast of Buenavista, Bohol, Phivolcs said.

It was felt at Intensity 4 in Buenavista; Intensity 3 in Sagbagyan, Bohol; and Intensity 2 in Talibon, Bohol and Lapu-Lapu and Cebu cities in Cebu.
