Moderate 4.4 quake hits near Ormoc, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines

4.4 quake 13 Aug 6:49 am (GMT +8)
4.4 quake 13 Aug 6:49 am (GMT +8)
Just 23 minutes ago, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Ormoc, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines. The tremor was recorded early morning on Saturday, August 13th, 2022, at 6:49 am local time, at a shallow depth of 22 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.4.
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 Libas (pop. 2,100) located 3 km from the epicenter, Isabel (pop. 8,600) 10 km away, Ormoc (pop. 191,200) 11 km away, Carigara (pop. 17,500) 42 km away, and Baybay (pop. 17,700) 43 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Palo (pop. 17,500) located 56 km from the epicenter, Tacloban City (pop. 242,100) 62 km away, Panalanoy (pop. 189,100) 63 km away, and Mandaue City (pop. 331,300) 96 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.
