Update Sat, 5 Mar 2022, 12:15Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.5 just reported 105 km southwest of Banda Aceh, Indonesia
5.5 quake 5 Mar 6:02 pm (GMT +6)
An earthquake of magnitude 5.5 occurred only 12 minutes ago 105 km southwest of Banda Aceh, Indonesia, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Banda Aceh, Kota Banda Aceh, Aceh, Indonesia, early evening on Saturday, March 5th, 2022, at 6:02 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.7. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.5, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.9.
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 Banda Aceh (pop. 250,800) located 105 km from the epicenter, Meulaboh (pop. 35,100) 126 km away, and Sigli (pop. 17,500) 127 km away.
