Just 17 minutes ago, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Pundong, Indonesia. The tremor was recorded after midnight on Tuesday 24 November 2020 at 12.06 am local time, at a shallow depth of 28 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter. Weak shaking might have been felt in Pundong (pop. 24,100) located 73 km from the epicenter, Bambanglipuro (pop. 44,700) 76 km away, Srandakan (pop. 29,500) 78 km away, Pandak (pop. 56,000) 79 km away, and Bantul (pop. 58,700) 81 km away.
