The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 130 km beneath the epicenter near Tobelo, Kabupaten Halmahera Utara, North Maluku, Indonesia, in the morning on Thursday, August 4th, 2022, at 10:00 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 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 Tobelo (pop. 10,000, 95 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
