Magnitude 5.0 earthquake strikes near Lata, Santa Cruz Islands, Temotu Province, Solomon Islands

5.0 quake 15 Sep 10:44 am (GMT +11)
5.0 quake 15 Sep 10:44 am (GMT +11)
The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a magnitude 5.0 quake in the Solomon Islands near Lata, Santa Cruz Islands, Temotu Province, only 25 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Wednesday, September 15th, 2021, at 10:44 am local time at an intermediate depth of 122 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.
A second report was later issued by Geoscience Australia (GeoAu), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake as well.
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 Lata (pop. 550) located 19 km from the epicenter.
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.
