MANILA, Philippines -- More than 30 after shocks were recorded following Tuesday's magnitude 5.2 quake that struck Masbate province, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Wednesday.

Ric Mangao, science research specialist of Phivolcs in Manila, said a total of 32 aftershocks have been recorded so far, seven of these strong enough to be felt.

The latest aftershock was recorded at magnitude 2.9 and was felt at Intensity 3 in Masbate City at 8:01 a.m. Wednesday.

At 7:29 a.m., a magnitude 3 quake struck and was also felt at Intensity 3 in Masbate City.

Mangao said more aftershocks can be expected.

Tuesday's magnitude 5.2 quake was felt at Intensity 6 in Masbate City and left at least 10 people injured.

After last month's 6.9 earthquake that left more than a hundred people dead and missing in Negros Oriental, aftershocks continued to rock the province for more than a week.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said several commercial establishments were closed down after these sustained cracks.
