Mag. 4.6 earthquake - 22 km northeast of Iriga City, Province of Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines, on Thursday, Nov 30, 2023, at 03:18 am (Manila time) -

A strong magnitude 4.6 earthquake hit near San Miguel Island island, Philippines, in the early morning of Thursday, Nov 30, 2023 at 3.18 am local time (Asia/Manila GMT +8). The quake had a very shallow depth of 10 km (6 mi) and was felt widely in the area. The shallow depth of the quake caused it to be felt more strongly near the epicenter than a deeper quake of similar magnitude would.
No significant damage or impact is expected from this quake and no particular alert was issued.

Moderate magnitude 4.5 quake hits 19 km northeast of Naga, Philippines early morning

4.5 quake 30 Nov 3:18 am (GMT +8)
4.5 quake 30 Nov 3:18 am (GMT +8)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred early morning on Thursday, November 30th, 2023, at 3:18 am local time near Naga, Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines, as reported by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 7 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 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 Binanwanaan (pop. 3,000) located 3 km from the epicenter, Calabanga (pop. 26,800) 13 km away, Magarao (pop. 15,200) 16 km away, Goa (pop. 20,900) 17 km away, and Naga (pop. 174,900) 19 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Iriga City (pop. 94,800) located 32 km from the epicenter, Libon (pop. 68,800) 47 km away, and Polangui (pop. 77,100) 49 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Legazpi (pop. 179,500) located 77 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.

Impact of this earthquake: Level GREEN



Based on seismic and statistical models, USGS estimates that the risk of fatalities and damage from this earthquake is low. The main factors that contribute to this evaluation are:

  • The maximum expected ground shaking from this quake was unlikely to reach dangerous levels over populated areas; it should not have surpassed intensity III (Weak) on the MMI scale significantly.


  • The quake appears to have occurred far from densely populated areas (far as in relation to its magnitude).


  • The quake hit at relatively shallow 10 km (6 mi) depth, which resulted in stronger shaking on the ground near the epicenter.




Nearby places

The closest larger town where the quake might have been felt is Legazpi, a city with more than 180,000 inhabitants in the Philippines, in 49 km (30 mi) distance southeast of the epicenter. People likely experienced weak shaking there. Many smaller towns and villages are located closer to the epicenter and might have experienced stronger shaking. In the capital of the  Philippines, Manila, 303 km (188 mi) away from the epicenter, the earthquake was probably felt as very weak shaking.

What is Intensity and the Mercalli Intensity Scale?


The amount of shaking that occurs on the surface due to an earthquake is called the intensity. It is commonly measured on the so-called Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale (MMI) ranging from 1 (not felt) to 10 (extreme shaking), and given in Roman numerals as I,II,...IX, X, and often displayed with color codes ranging from light blue to dark red.
Earthquake intensity depends mainly on the magnitude and depth of the quake as well as the distance from the epicenter: The further away, the less shaking intensity occurs.

Aftershocks for this quake

No aftershocks have been recorded so far. When aftershocks are detected, we will update this section.

What are aftershocks?


Larger earthquakes (above magnitude 5 or so) such as this one are usually followed by smaller ones known as aftershocks that occur in the same area during the days, weeks, months or even years after the main shock.
[More info]

What about this quake?


Based on its magnitude, the fault that was active during the quake likely ruptured beneath a surface of approx. 4 km2 (=2 sqare miles) as a first-order estimate. The length of the rupture zone thus was probably around 3 km (2 mi).

Earthquake statistics

Average number of earthquakes

Based on data from the past 10 years and our earthquake archive back to 1900, there are about 1,100 quakes on average per year in the area near the epicenter of this quake (within 100 km/61 mi):
  • Mag. 7 or higher: 0.04 quakes per year (or 1 quake every 25 years)
  • Mag. 6 or higher: 0.08 quakes per year (or 1 quake every 12.5 years)
  • Mag. 5 or higher: 0.36 quakes per year (or 1 quake every 2.8 years)
  • Mag. 4 or higher: 3.4 quakes per year
  • Mag. 3 or higher: 24.4 quakes per year
  • Mag. 2 or higher: 89 quakes per year
  • Mag. 1 or higher: 106 quakes per year (or 8.9 quakes per month)
The area where this quake occurred has a high level of seismic activity. It has had at least 5 quakes above magnitude 7 since 1900, which suggests that larger earthquakes of this size occur infrequently, probably on average approximately every 20 to 25 years.
