Update Wed, 8 Jun 2022, 05:45
Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.6 just reported 39 km southwest of Mamuju, Indonesia
5.6 quake 8 Jun 1:32 pm (GMT +8)
5.6 quake 8 Jun 1:32 pm (GMT +8)
A magnitude 5.6 earthquake near Mamuju, Kabupaten Mamuju, West Sulawesi, Indonesia, was reported only 13 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter around noon on Wednesday, June 8th, 2022, at 1:32 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.
A second report was later issued by France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.3 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.7, and the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.6.
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 Mamuju (pop. 15,000) located 39 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Majene (pop. 37,700) located 88 km from the epicenter, and Polewali (pop. 58,200) 107 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.
