4.9 quake 27 km NW of Sigli, Indonesia, 14 Nov 1.33 am (GMT +7)
4.9 quake 27 km NW of Sigli, Indonesia, 14 Nov 1.33 am (GMT +7)
A magnitude 4.9 earthquake was reported only 12 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Saturday 14 November 2020 at 1.33 am local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.9 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in Sigli (pop. 17,500) located 27 km from the epicenter, Banda Aceh (pop. 250,800) 53 km away, Sabang (pop. 24,500) 65 km away, Reuleuet (pop. 40,400) 66 km away, and Bireun (pop. 25,800) 107 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you’re in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
If you felt it, report it through our site or app right now!
