Moderate yet deep magnitude 5.0 earthquake 47 km east of Santo, Vanuatu

5.0 quake 8 Jun 2:51 am (GMT +11)
5.0 quake 8 Jun 2:51 am (GMT +11)
A magnitude 5.0 earthquake near Santo, Luganville, Sanma Province, Vanuatu, was reported only 17 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 118 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Wednesday, June 8th, 2022, at 2:51 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.3.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Santo (pop. 13,400) located 47 km from the epicenter, Norsup (pop. 3,000) 65 km away, and Port-Olry (pop. 2,000) 77 km away.
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.
