The quake hit at a shallow depth of 18 km beneath the epicenter near General Santos City, South Cotabato, Soccsksargen, Philippines, early morning on Tuesday 25 May 2021 at 3:46 am 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 4.8, and India's National Center for Seismology (NCS) at magnitude 5.1.
