Two hours ago the Instituto Nicaragüense de Estudios Territoriales (INETER) reported a 4.3-magnitude earthquake in the North Pacific Ocean, 19 km northwest of Buenaventura, Colombia at a depth of 107km.

Even though the earthquake occured a while ago, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

Weak shaking was most likely felt in Yumbo, Santiago De Cali, Jamundi, Palmira and Candelaria. No significant damage was reported.
