Just 13 minutes ago, a 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck near Kidapawan, Province of Cotabato, Soccsksargen, Philippines. The tremor was recorded early morning on Saturday 19 June 2021 at 2:41 am local time, at a moderately shallow depth of 34 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake 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 Malamote (pop. 3,100) located 6 km from the epicenter, Kabacan (pop. 31,800) 12 km away, Kidapawan (pop. 79,700) 20 km away, Buluan (pop. 28,000) 36 km away, Tacurong (pop. 54,600) 46 km away, Midsayap (pop. 32,900) 46 km away, Malingao (pop. 1,122,000) 50 km away, Budta (pop. 1,273,700) 55 km away, and Koronadal City (pop. 125,500) 59 km away.
