Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.0 just reported 16 km southwest of Maramag, Philippines

5.0 quake 14 Jun 10:49 pm (GMT +8)
5.0 quake 14 Jun 10:49 pm (GMT +8)
Just 17 minutes ago, a 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck near Maramag, Bukidnon, Northern Mindanao, Philippines. The tremor was recorded late at night on Monday 14 June 2021 at 10:49 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 4 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 5.1. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.9.
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 Adtugan (pop. 3,400) located 11 km from the epicenter.
In Don Carlos (pop. 20,500) located 15 km from the epicenter, Maramag (pop. 33,800) 16 km away, Wao (pop. 17,800) 23 km away, Dologon (pop. 15,100) 24 km away, Quezon (pop. 27,200) 25 km away, and Valencia (pop. 83,600) 33 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Malaybalay City (pop. 61,500) located 57 km from the epicenter, and Budta (pop. 1,273,700) 74 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.
