4.8 quake 19 Jun 5:15 am (GMT +8)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred only 15 minutes ago 11 km north of Iligan City, Philippines, Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Iligan City, PH.12.34, Soccsksargen, Philippines, early morning on Saturday 19 June 2021 at 5:15 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2. A third agency, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.2.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Tuod (pop. 2,800) located 7 km from the epicenter, Iligan City (pop. 312,300) 11 km away, and irigan (pop. 342,600) 24 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Cagayan de Oro (pop. 445,100) located 29 km from the epicenter, Mantampay (pop. 265,000) 30 km away, Boroon (pop. 15,500) 33 km away, Bugo (pop. 45,800) 41 km away, Marawi City (pop. 143,600) 41 km away, and Tagoloan (pop. 30,400) 42 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.
