Just 13 minutes ago, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Malango, Guadalcanal Province, Solomon Islands. The tremor was recorded early evening on Thursday 4 March 2021 at 6:23 pm local time, at a great depth of 528 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Malango (pop. 10,500, 96 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
