A magnitude 5.1 earthquake near Kefamenanu, Kabupaten Timor Tengah Utara, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, was reported only 9 minutes ago by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Indonesia. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 53 km beneath the epicenter around noon on Monday 22 February 2021 at 12:45 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Kefamenanu (pop. 29,500) located 127 km from the epicenter.
