4.7 quake 10 Jun 2:49 am (GMT +8)
An intermediate magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported early morning near Malita, Davao Occidental, Davao, Philippines.
According to Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the quake hit on Thursday 10 June 2021 at 2:49 am local time at an intermediate depth of 101 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.7 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pondaguitan (pop. 2,100) located 37 km from the epicenter, Surup (pop. 2,100) 41 km away, Caburan (pop. 12,600) 66 km away, Talagutong (pop. 8,000) 67 km away, Tibanbang (pop. 7,800) 68 km away, Governor Generoso (pop. 8,000) 72 km away, Malita (pop. 41,100) 81 km away, and Lupon (pop. 27,200) 100 km away.
