4.3 quake 12 km S of Cicurug, Indonesia, 16 Nov 5.19 am (GMT +7)
Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) reported a magnitude 4.3 quake in Indonesia near the town of Cicurug only 14 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early morning on Monday 16 November 2020 at 5.19 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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 4.3 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 Cicurug (pop. 89,000) located 12 km from the epicenter, Sukabumi (pop. 276,400) 14 km away, Caringin (pop. 91,800) 21 km away, Pelabuhanratu (pop. 43,000) 30 km away, Bogor (pop. 800,000) 33 km away, Jakarta (pop. 8,540,100) 75 km away, and Bekasi (pop. 1,520,100) 76 km away.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Bandung (pop. 1,699,700) located 89 km from the epicenter.
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.
