Moderate magnitude 4.6 quake hits 110 km northeast of Baucau, Timor-Leste early morning

4.6 quake 6 Aug 4:15 am (GMT +9)
4.6 quake 6 Aug 4:15 am (GMT +9)
A magnitude 4.6 earthquake near Baucau, Timor-Leste, was reported 38 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, 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 early morning on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, at 4:15 am local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.6 as well. A third agency, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, reported the same quake at magnitude 4.6.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Baucau (pop. 16,000) located 110 km from the epicenter, and Lospalos (pop. 17,200) 112 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.
