4.3 quake 1 Jan 8:33 am (GMT +8)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred only 12 minutes ago 54 km south of Dompu, Indonesia, Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 66 km beneath the epicenter near Dompu, Dompu Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, in the morning on Friday 1 January 2021 at 8:33 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Dompu (pop. 49,000) located 54 km from the epicenter, and Bima (pop. 67,000) 67 km away.
