According to Phivolcs, residents in the affected areas could still experience aftershocks following the earthquake in Cotabato.

“Aftershocks can happen. Some can be felt most likely in low intensities. But we cannot remove the possibility of similar intensities that can be felt in the epicentral area,” said Renato Solidum, head of Phivolcs.
