Moderate yet deep earthquake of magnitude 5.5 just reported 17 km southwest of Cabanatuan City, Philippines

5.5 quake 8 Nov 10:30 pm (GMT +8)
5.5 quake 8 Nov 10:30 pm (GMT +8)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 5.5 earthquake was reported late at night near Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Central Luzon, Philippines.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, at 10:30 pm local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 186 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 5.1 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) at magnitude 5.4, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.5, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.5.
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 San Francisco (pop. 19,600) located 3 km from the epicenter, Papaya (pop. 38,600) 7 km away, Jaen (pop. 39,700) 9 km away, Gapan (pop. 79,100) 13 km away, Cabiao (pop. 50,000) 15 km away, Cabanatuan City (pop. 220,300) 17 km away, Tarlac City (pop. 183,900) 29 km away, San Fernando City (pop. 251,200) 42 km away, Quezon City (pop. 2,761,700) 84 km away, and Manila (pop. 1,600,000) 87 km away.
