Moderate tremor of magnitude 4.4 just reported 30 km southeast of Abuyog, Philippines
4.4 quake 20 Jul 1:53 am (GMT +8)
4.4 quake 20 Jul 1:53 am (GMT +8)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred only 22 minutes ago 30 km southeast of Abuyog, Philippines, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 1 km beneath the epicenter near Abuyog, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines, early morning on Tuesday 20 July 2021 at 1:53 am 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 4.4 earthquake as well.
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 Polahongon (pop. 2,700) located 15 km from the epicenter, and Sogod (pop. 8,300) 17 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Abuyog (pop. 15,600) located 30 km from the epicenter, Baybay City (pop. 17,700) 39 km away, and Maasin (pop. 18,300) 48 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tanauan (pop. 16,600) located 70 km from the epicenter, Ormoc City (pop. 191,200) 79 km away, and Tacloban City (pop. 242,100) 84 km away.
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.
