Very strong magnitude 7.2 quake hits 151 km northwest of Tobelo, Indonesia early afternoon

7.2 quake 18 Jan 3:06 pm (GMT +9)
7.2 quake 18 Jan 3:06 pm (GMT +9)
Indonesia was shaken near Tobelo, Kabupaten Halmahera Utara, North Maluku, by an earthquake of magnitude 7.2 only 21 minutes ago, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 60 km beneath the epicenter near Tobelo, Kabupaten Halmahera Utara, North Maluku, Indonesia, early afternoon on Wednesday, January 18th, 2023, at 3:06 pm 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.
A second report was later issued by Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), which listed it as a magnitude 6.8 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) at magnitude 7.2, Geoscience Australia (GeoAu) at magnitude 7.0, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 7.2, France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) at magnitude 6.6, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 7.0, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 7.1.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Tobelo (pop. 10,000) located 151 km from the epicenter.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
