Just 24 minutes ago, a 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck near Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, Caraga, Philippines. The tremor was recorded after midnight on Thursday 17 June 2021 at 12:42 am local time, at a very shallow depth of 4 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2 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 Santa Monica (pop. 2,300) located 35 km from the epicenter, and San Benito (pop. 2,300) 42 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pilar (pop. 2,400) located 44 km from the epicenter, Libas (pop. 3,400) 50 km away, Del Carmen (pop. 4,300) 52 km away, Union (pop. 2,400) 55 km away, Dapa (pop. 8,800) 57 km away, and Surigao City (pop. 87,800) 98 km away.
