Moments ago a 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck 10 km northwest of Santa Cruz de El Seibo, Dominican Republic at a depth of 105.9km

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.

Weak shaking was felt in Pedro Sanchez (pop. 1,600) located 4 km from the epicenter, Santa Cruz de El Seibo (pop. 23,500) 10 km away, Hato Mayor del Rey (pop. 36,000) 18 km away, Quisqueya (pop. 17,700) 44 km away, and Bayaguana (pop. 21,100), Boca Chica (pop. 46,300) located 67 km from the epicenter, Punta Cana (pop. 100,000) 79 km away, Santo Domingo Este (pop. 700,000) 88 km away, and Santo Domingo (pop. 2,201,900) 92 km away.
