A moderately shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early afternoon near Meulaboh, Kabupaten Aceh Barat, Aceh, Indonesia.
According to Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, the quake hit on Tuesday 11 May 2021 at 3:47 pm local time at a moderately shallow depth of 35 km. 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
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 Meulaboh (pop. 35,100) located 22 km from the epicenter.
