Minutes ago, the Indonesia’s Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency reported that a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck 4.2 km northeast of Veruela, Province of Agusan del Sur, Caraga, Philippines at a depth of 76km.

Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Veruela (pop. 18,100) located 4 km from the epicenter, Bunawan (pop. 15,500) 9 km away, Trento (pop. 15,900) 9 km away, Monkayo (pop. 51,400) 31 km away, Bislig City (pop. 67,600) 39 km away, Talacogon (pop. 15,600) 47 km away, Compostela (pop. 42,600) 48 km away, and San Francisco (pop. 18,500) 50 km away.
