An hour ago a 4.9-magnitude earthquake struck the North Pacific Ocean, 120 km southeast of Dededo Village, Guam at a depth of 66km. The quake struck at 8.18am local time.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Towns that might have felt a weak tremor include Talofofo Village (pop. 3,200) located 108 km from the epicenter, Santa Rita (pop. 7,500) 116 km away, Barrigada Village (pop. 8,900) 117 km away, Tamuning-Tumon-Harmon Village (pop. 19,700) 119 km away, Yigo Village (pop. 20,500) 120 km away, Dededo Village (pop. 44,900) 120 km away, and Hagåtña (pop. 1,100) 120 km away.
