5.6 quake 8 Jun 8:56 pm (GMT +10)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 149 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.5. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.6, and Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency at magnitude 5.4.
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 Kimbe (pop. 18,800) located 132 km from the epicenter.
