An earthquake of magnitude 5.0 occurred only 23 minutes ago 77 km south of San Jose, Northern Mariana Islands, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 105.8 km beneath the epicenter near San Jose, Tinian, Northern Mariana Islands, around noon on Tuesday 27 April 2021 at 1:40 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include San Jose (pop. 15,000) located 77 km from the epicenter, Saipan (pop. 48,200) 107 km away, Dededo Village (pop. 44,900) 110 km away, Tamuning-Tumon-Harmon Village (pop. 19,700) 116 km away, Barrigada Village (pop. 8,900) 117 km away, Mongmong-Toto-Maite Village (pop. 6,800) 118 km away, Mangilao Village (pop. 15,200) 118 km away, Hagåtña (pop. 1,100) 119 km away, and Chalan Pago-Ordot Village (pop. 6,800) 121 km away.
