a Estimated slip distribution for the 2017 Ormoc earthquake. Contours are drawn with 10 cm interval. Arrow direction shows the movement of the hanging wall (eastern side) with respect to the western side (right/up indicates left-lateral/reverse faulting). Black filled circles are the epicenters of aftershocks (6 July–31 December 2017) closer than 5 km from the fault surface, and star denotes the epicenter of the mainshock (PHIVOLCS), both projected on the fault plane. b Estimated standard deviation of the slip. Contours are drawn with 10 cm of interval
