Moderate earthquake of magnitude 4.2 just reported 98 km southeast of Madang, Papua New Guinea
4.2 quake 30 Apr 3:45 pm (GMT +10)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Madang, Madang Province, Papua New Guinea, was reported only 20 minutes ago by Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate to considerable depth of 153 km beneath the epicenter early afternoon on Friday 30 April 2021 at 3:45 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2 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 Madang (pop. 27,400, 98 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
