4.9 quake 12 Jul 9:52 am (GMT +7)
The United States Geological Survey reported a magnitude 4.9 quake in Indonesia near Bandar Lampung, Lampung, only 20 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Tuesday, July 12th, 2022, at 9:52 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 35 km. 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.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.9 earthquake as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 5.0, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.9.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Bandar Lampung (pop. 800,300) located 120 km from the epicenter.
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.
