A very shallow magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported after midnight near Port Vila, Shefa Province, Vanuatu.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Wednesday 5 May 2021 at 12:33 am local time at a very shallow depth of 9 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 Geoscience Australia (GeoAu), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake as well. A third agency, the United States Geological Survey, reported the same quake at magnitude 5.0.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.

In Port Vila (pop. 35,900) located 38 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
