5.1 quake 12 Apr 8:52 am (GMT +7)
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 110 km beneath the epicenter near Bandar Lampung, Lampung, Indonesia, in the morning on Monday 12 April 2021 at 8:52 am 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 the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1 as well. 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 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 Bandar Lampung (pop. 800,300) located 82 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Kotabumi (pop. 42,400) located 96 km from the epicenter, Metro (pop. 149,500) 101 km away, and Terbanggi Besar (pop. 52,600) 111 km away.
