Moderate magnitude 4.9 quake hits 13 km southeast of Vanimo, Papua New Guinea in the evening
4.9 quake 5 Dec 9:40 pm (GMT +10)
4.9 quake 5 Dec 9:40 pm (GMT +10)
A magnitude 4.9 earthquake near Vanimo, Vanimo-Green River District, West Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, was reported only 14 minutes ago by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter in the evening on Sunday, December 5th, 2021, at 9:40 pm 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake.
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 Vanimo (pop. 11,200) located 13 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Abepura (pop. 62,200) located 82 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Aitape (pop. 5,500) located 119 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.
