4.3 quake 6 Jun 9:51 pm (GMT +8)
Just 24 minutes ago, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Santa Monica, Surigao del Norte, Caraga, Philippines. The tremor was recorded in the evening on Sunday 6 June 2021 at 9:51 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 7 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well.
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 Santa Monica (pop. 2,300) located 43 km from the epicenter, San Benito (pop. 2,300) 49 km away, and Pilar (pop. 2,400) 49 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Libas (pop. 3,400) located 57 km from the epicenter, Del Carmen (pop. 4,300) 59 km away, Union (pop. 2,400) 59 km away, Dapa (pop. 8,800) 62 km away, and Surigao City (pop. 87,800) 107 km away.
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.
