Moderate magnitude 4.9 quake hits 68 km northeast of Santo, Vanuatu early morning

4.9 quake 14 Jun 4:26 am (GMT +11)
4.9 quake 14 Jun 4:26 am (GMT +11)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.9 earthquake was reported early morning near Santo, Luganville, Sanma Province, Vanuatu.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Tuesday, June 14th, 2022, at 4:26 am local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 226.3 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 4.9 as well. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.6.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Santo (pop. 13,400) located 68 km from the epicenter, Port-Olry (pop. 2,000) 84 km away, Norsup (pop. 3,000) 88 km away, and Lakatoro (pop. 710) 90 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.
