A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Serang, Banten, Indonesia, was reported only 10 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate to considerable depth of 153 km beneath the epicenter early evening on Wednesday, May 11th, 2022, at 7:11 pm 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Labuan (pop. 33,600, 23 km away), Pandeglang (pop. 92,300, 31 km away), Serang (pop. 164,800, 33 km away), Rangkasbitung (pop. 126,900, 48 km away), Kresek (pop. 110,200, 58 km away), Curug (pop. 191,400, 78 km away), Tangerang (pop. 1,372,100, 85 km away), and Tangerang Selatan (pop. 1,303,600, 96 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
