Magnitude 4.6 earthquake strikes near Abuyog, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines
4.6 quake 23 Apr 4:31 am (GMT +8)
4.6 quake 23 Apr 4:31 am (GMT +8)
A moderately shallow magnitude 4.6 earthquake was reported early morning near Abuyog, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Friday 23 April 2021 at 4:31 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 39 km. 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 Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake. A third agency, the United States Geological Survey, reported the same quake at magnitude 4.6.
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 Polahongon (pop. 2,700) located 14 km from the epicenter, Abuyog (pop. 15,600) 31 km away, Baybay (pop. 17,700) 39 km away, and Maasin (pop. 18,300) 47 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tanauan (pop. 16,600) located 70 km from the epicenter, Ormoc City (pop. 191,200) 79 km away, Tacloban City (pop. 242,100) 85 km away, Panalanoy (pop. 189,100) 86 km away, and Surigao City (pop. 87,800) 89 km away.
