Published at : 29 Jan 2021
A shallow magnitude 4.9 earthquake was reported around noon near Batangas City, Batangas, Calabarzon, Philippines.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Friday 29 January 2021 at 1:12 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.9 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.9.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Paluan, located 16 km from the epicenter, and Mamburao, 33 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Balayan, located 50 km from the epicenter, Balayan, 50 km away, Batangas City, 60 km away, Nasugbu, 61 km away, Calapan, 68 km away, Lipa City, 80 km away, and Dasmariñas, 99 km away.
