Moderate magnitude 4.2 earthquake 105 km northeast of Amahai, Indonesia
4.2 quake 3 Mar 6:26 am (GMT +9)
4.2 quake 3 Mar 6:26 am (GMT +9)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Amahai, Maluku, Indonesia, was reported only 13 minutes ago by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in Indonesia. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Wednesday 3 March 2021 at 6:26 am 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 4.2 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Amahai (pop. 47,700) located 105 km from the epicenter.
