An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 occurred early morning on Monday 9 November 2020 at 6.06 am local time near the town of Sungai Penuh, Indonesia, as reported by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 148 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Sungai Penuh (pop. 95,900) located 50 km from the epicenter.
