A magnitude 4.4 earthquake near Dapa, Surigao del Norte, Caraga, Philippines, was reported only 10 minutes ago by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2 km beneath the epicenter after midnight on Friday 11 June 2021 at 12:41 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.
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 53 km from the epicenter, and Pilar (pop. 2,400) 56 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include San Benito (pop. 2,300) located 59 km from the epicenter, Union (pop. 2,400) 64 km away, Libas (pop. 3,400) 65 km away, Del Carmen (pop. 4,300) 67 km away, and Dapa (pop. 8,800) 68 km away.
