4.4 quake 30 Oct 11:13 am (GMT +11)
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Saturday, October 30th, 2021, at 11:13 am local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 206 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. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the United States Geological Survey which listed the quake at magnitude 4.4 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 Isangel (pop. 1,400, 61 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.

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. ...
