Minutes ago a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Philippine Sea, 81 km east of Mati, Province of Davao Oriental, Philippines at a depth of 10km. It struck early morning on Thursday, April 21st, 2022, at 5:57 am local time.

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.

The strong earthquake was felt in Manay (pop. 20,300) located 55 km from the epicenter, San Ignacio (pop. 6,300) 58 km away, Caraga (pop. 4,400) 59 km away, Central (pop. 10,100) 78 km away, Mati (pop. 105,900) 87 km away, and Compostela (pop. 42,600) 124 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Magugpo Poblacion (pop. 233,300) located 140 km from the epicenter.
