A shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early morning near Gorontalo, Indonesia.
4.2 quake 52 km northwest of Gorontalo, Indonesia, 3 Jun 4:23 am (GMT +8)
According to Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the quake hit on Thursday 3 June 2021 at 4:23 am local time at a shallow depth of 27 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Gorontalo (pop. 144,200) located 52 km from the epicenter.
