4.8 quake 7 Feb 7:28 am (GMT +8)
A shallow magnitude 4.8 earthquake was reported in the morning near Digos, Davao del Sur, Davao, Philippines.
According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the quake hit on Sunday 7 February 2021 at 7:28 am local time at a shallow depth of 16 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 European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.9.
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 Magsaysay (pop. 16,600) located 12 km from the epicenter, and Bansalan (pop. 21,400) 15 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Kidapawan (pop. 79,700) located 29 km from the epicenter, Digos (pop. 116,100) 31 km away, Buluan (pop. 28,000) 31 km away, Tacurong (pop. 54,600) 45 km away, Bañga (pop. 58,900) 49 km away, Davao City (pop. 1,212,500) 69 km away, and Budta (pop. 1,273,700) 87 km away.
