Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported a magnitude 4.5 quake in the Philippines near Sarangani, Davao Occidental, Davao, only 15 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Friday 12 March 2021 at 9:51 am local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 168 km. 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 4.5 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Sarangani (pop. 7,500) located 51 km from the epicenter. In Glan (pop. 24,300, 106 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
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.

If you felt it, report it through our site or app right now!
