4.9 quake 18 Jul 11:08 am (GMT +8)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a great depth of 405 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 Lake Sebu (pop. 21,800, 12 km away), Surallah (pop. 31,100, 19 km away), Bañga (pop. 58,900, 25 km away), Koronadal City (pop. 125,500, 37 km away), Tupi (pop. 16,500, 39 km away), Isulan (pop. 31,700, 40 km away), Tacurong City (pop. 54,600, 48 km away), Polomolok (pop. 64,000, 50 km away), General Santos City (pop. 679,600, 65 km away), and Malingao (pop. 1,122,000, 100 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
