An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred in the morning on Wednesday 20 January 2021 at 8:14 am local time near Santa Monica, Surigao del Norte, Caraga, 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Santa Monica (pop. 2,300) located 76 km from the epicenter, Pilar (pop. 2,400) 81 km away, Del Carmen (pop. 4,300) 92 km away, and Dapa (pop. 8,800) 93 km away.
