Just 16 minutes ago, a 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck near Mati, Davao Oriental, Davao, Philippines. The tremor was recorded in the morning on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021, at 8:56 am local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1. Other agencies reporting the same quake include Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency at magnitude 5.1, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.4.
Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.

Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Tamisan (pop. 2,900) located 9 km from the epicenter, Bobon (pop. 4,500) 12 km away, Mati (pop. 105,900) 24 km away, and Lupon (pop. 27,200) 37 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Manay (pop. 20,300) located 57 km from the epicenter, Samal (pop. 43,500) 75 km away, Davao City (pop. 1,212,500) 84 km away, Malita (pop. 41,100) 86 km away, Panabo (pop. 84,700) 92 km away, and Magugpo Poblacion (pop. 233,300) 95 km away.
