Just 16 minutes ago, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Lambarene, Moyen-Ogooué, Gabon. The tremor was recorded early morning on Tuesday 27 April 2021 at 1:40 am local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.8 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 Lambarene (pop. 20,700) located 29 km from the epicenter, and Fougamou (pop. 5,600) 51 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ndjolé (pop. 5,100) located 107 km from the epicenter.
