The quake hit at an intermediate to considerable depth of 162 km beneath the epicenter near Malita, Davao Occidental, Davao, Philippines, in the evening on Saturday 1 May 2021 at 9:47 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 the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2 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 Pondaguitan (pop. 2,100, 35 km away), Caburan (pop. 12,600, 54 km away), Malita (pop. 41,100, 68 km away), Santa Maria (pop. 16,800, 90 km away), Alabel (pop. 43,300, 91 km away), Malapatan (pop. 19,400, 91 km away), Lupon (pop. 27,200, 95 km away), Maluñgun (pop. 52,200, 95 km away), and General Santos City (pop. 679,600, 104 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
