An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred late at night on Friday 23 October at 10.18 pm local time near the town of Poso, Indonesia, as reported by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG). According to preliminary data, the quake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change within the next hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage.
