A shallow magnitude 4.5 earthquake was reported in the afternoon near Tuban, East Java, Indonesia.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Sunday, May 29th, 2022, at 5:09 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 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.
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 Tuban (pop. 76,200) located 52 km from the epicenter, and Paciran (pop. 27,100) 57 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Lamongan (pop. 59,200) located 83 km from the epicenter, Bojonegoro (pop. 86,600) 84 km away, Bangkalan (pop. 62,200) 96 km away, Cepu (pop. 55,100) 99 km away, Kebomas (pop. 76,000) 100 km away, and Gresik (pop. 73,600) 100 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.
