The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.6 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Pagan Village (pop. 50, 73 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
