An earthquake of magnitude 5.7 occurred only 10 minutes ago 113 km northeast of Lospalos, Timor-Leste, Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported.
5.7 quake 19 Apr 4:07 pm (GMT +9)
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 46 km beneath the epicenter near Lospalos, Lautém, Timor-Leste, in the afternoon on Monday 19 April 2021 at 4:07 pm 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 identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.4. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 5.4, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.6.
Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
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 Lospalos (pop. 17,200) located 113 km from the epicenter.
