A magnitude 4.5 earthquake near Sukabumi, West Java, Indonesia, was reported only 9 minutes ago by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Indonesia. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 18 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Saturday, October 30th, 2021, at 5:56 am 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.
