Moments ago a 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck Bosnia Serb Republic, 88 km south of Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina at a shallow depth of 10km.

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.

Based on preliminary data moderate shaking was most likely felt in Stolac (pop. 7,700) located 19 km from the epicenter, Nevesinje (pop. 7,300) 23 km away, and Bileća (pop. 13,300) 28 km away.
In Trebinje (pop. 33,200) located 41 km from the epicenter, Mostar (pop. 104,500) 44 km away, and Sarajevo (pop. 696,700) 88 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking. Weak shaking was most likely felt in Podgorica (pop. 236,900) located 111 km from the epicenter.
