According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 10 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 4.3 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pelabuhanratu (pop. 43,000) located 69 km from the epicenter, Labuan (pop. 33,600) 88 km away, Rangkasbitung (pop. 126,900) 95 km away, Pandeglang (pop. 92,300) 96 km away, Cicurug (pop. 89,000) 101 km away, and Ciampea (pop. 207,200) 107 km away.
