Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported a magnitude 4.6 quake in Indonesia near Bengkulu, only 10 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Monday 1 March 2021 at 7:13 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 38 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.

A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Bengkulu (pop. 309,700) located 51 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Curup (pop. 46,200) located 84 km from the epicenter, Pagar Alam (pop. 70,400) 92 km away, and Lubuklinggau (pop. 148,200) 113 km away.
