A very shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early evening near Maramag, Bukidnon, Northern Mindanao, Philippines.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Monday 12 July 2021 at 7:25 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 4 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2 as well.
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 Osias (pop. 3,200) located 9 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Don Carlos (pop. 20,500) located 17 km from the epicenter, Maramag (pop. 33,800) 20 km away, Wao (pop. 17,800) 20 km away, Quezon (pop. 27,200) 28 km away, Dologon (pop. 15,100) 29 km away, and Valencia (pop. 83,600) 38 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Malaybalay City (pop. 61,500) located 62 km from the epicenter, and Budta (pop. 1,273,700) 69 km away.
