4.4 quake 7 May 4:07 am (GMT +8)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a great depth of 510 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.1. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.4.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Palimbang (pop. 4,900, 8 km away), Kalamansig (pop. 12,800, 36 km away), Lake Sebu (pop. 21,800, 65 km away), Laguilayan (pop. 17,800, 66 km away), Isulan (pop. 31,700, 69 km away), Bañga (pop. 58,900, 76 km away), Tacurong (pop. 54,600, 79 km away), and Koronadal City (pop. 125,500, 86 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
