Significant magnitude 5.0 quake hits 3 km southeast of Catbalogan, Philippines early morning

5.0 quake 2 Dec 4:05 am (GMT +8)
5.0 quake 2 Dec 4:05 am (GMT +8)
The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 5.0 quake in the Philippines near Catbalogan, Samar, Eastern Visayas, only 24 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early morning on Friday, December 2nd, 2022, at 4:05 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, 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 4.9.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Pangdan (pop. 2,600) located 2 km from the epicenter, Catbalogan (pop. 68,100) 3 km away, and Jiabong (pop. 4,100) 5 km away.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Calbayog City (pop. 67,900) located 48 km from the epicenter, Carigara (pop. 17,500) 57 km away, Panalanoy (pop. 189,100) 58 km away, Tacloban City (pop. 242,100) 58 km away, Catarman (pop. 47,400) 87 km away, and Ormoc (pop. 191,200) 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.
