4.3 quake 22 Jul 7:15 pm (GMT +8)
A shallow magnitude 4.3 earthquake was reported early evening near Ormoc City, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Thursday 22 July 2021 at 7:15 pm local time at a shallow depth of 12 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 Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 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 Naval (pop. 12,200) located 6 km from the epicenter, and Caraycaray (pop. 3,200) 6 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Carigara (pop. 17,500) located 40 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ormoc City (pop. 191,200) located 61 km from the epicenter, Catbalogan (pop. 68,100) 63 km away, Bogo (pop. 23,600) 65 km away, Calbayog City (pop. 67,900) 66 km away, Panalanoy (pop. 189,100) 74 km away, and Tacloban City (pop. 242,100) 74 km away.
