Earthquakes reported felt:


#1: 6.4 quake: Mindanao, Philippines, 6 Sep 2020 15h23 - 360 reports

A strong earthquake of magnitude 6.3 hit the Philippine's Mindanao island this evening, approx. 90 km SSE of Davao city.
This is the second larger quake in the area following the magnitude 5.1 quake on 30 Aug.
There is no tsunami expected from the quake. Thanks to the relative large depth of the quake at around 120 km, only moderate but widely felt will have occurred in most of Mindanao Island, and no major damage should be expected.

#2: 2.6 quake: 3km ESE of San Leandro, CA (USA), 6 Sep 2020 18h36 - 257 reports
#3: 3.2 quake: 3km ESE of San Leandro, CA (USA), 6 Sep 2020 18h43 - 85 reports
#4: 6.3 quake: 12 Km Al SE De Tongoy (Chile), 6 Sep 2020 01h16 - 44 reports

Another large earthquake hit Chile's western coast yesterday evening at 9:16 pm local time. The quake was at 25 km depth and had its epicenter 12 km SE of Tongoy in the region of Coquimbo, 430 km north of Santiago.
Strong shaking occurred on the ground in areas of up to 50 km distance from the epicenter, but light to weak shaking could be felt in a vast area up to several hundred kilometers distance.
There are no reports of injuries or significant damage, mostly due to the fact that there are no towns in the immediate vicinity of the quake.
A similar, but stronger magnitude 7 quake had occurred 5 days earlier 266 km to the north. It could be that earthquakes currently propagate southwards along the Pacific - South American tectonic plate margin.

#5: 4.8 quake: Sw Tetuan.mac (Morocco), 6 Sep 2020 11h56 - 19 reports
