Moderate earthquake off the Fukushima coast, Japan
The epicenter was relatively close to the shore. JMA Japan reports a depth of 30 km and a max. intensity of 4 JMA (we consider JMA 5+ as an intensity which can inflict damage).
Strong earthquake close to Mindanao, Philippines
We are seeing at this moment a serious increase in number of visitors from the Philippines.
When you have felt an earthquake, please let us know by filling in the form below
The earthquakes epicenter is off the coast which will weaken the shaking considerably.
Update : The epicenter locations provided by different agencies are far to uncertain to give a danger estimate.
Update : the depth of this earthquake is currently reported as 40 to 60 km which is very good news. At the other hand, USGS reports an epicenter at only 8 km from Burgos and a Magnitude of 6.4, a lot more than the other agencies.
Update : The depth is more or less confirmed by the I Have Felt It reports we have received from within Mindanao. Most of them indicate a very weak shaking which is typical for deeper earthquakes.
Update : Strange enough, Phivolcs the local seismological data provider has not yet reported this earthquake.
Update 18:59 UTC : EMSC has now changed his measured Magnitude to M5.8 at a depth of 60 km. Additionally EMSC puts the epicenter location at a bigger distance from the coast than USGS. 3 favorable parameters, if true, probably avoiding serious damage. Secondary damage by landslides are always a possibility at the Philippines.
Update 19:02 UTC : USGS predicts, based on his own higher numbers, that the max. shaking will be a V MMI (moderate shaking). Based on what we receive from within the Philippines by our readers, and still lacking data from Phivolcs, we tend to believe the EMSC numbers more than those from USGS.
Update 19:10 UTC : Good news from Phivolcs, Philippines (to be trusted as local seismological agency) : Magnitude M5.8 – Depth : 99 km. These numbers are equalling what we have received as testimonies from within the Philippines. Based on these numbers, it would really surprise us that damage would be inflicted. Based on the Phivolcs numbers, the map below should be coloured light blue entirely.
Update 19:20 UTC : Closest city to the epicenter : Tandag City, a city with 44,327 inhabitants.
Update 19:59 UTC : People at Tandag City (city closest to the epicenter following Phivolcs) are reporting a MMI VI, rather strong shaking.
Update 20:13 UTC : Phivolcs has updated his earthquake report in the very bad direction. The Magnitude has been increased from Mw5.7 to Mw6.5, a HUGE difference. The depth from 99 km to 75 km. Phivolcs is expecting damage and aftershocks !
Update 22:56 UTC : Strange situation at the Philippines. USGS decreased his earthquake values from M6.4 to M6.1 while local Phivolcs increased the Magnitude from M5.7 to M6.5. Same happened with the depth.
The power in Tandag was ruptured for a couple of hours but is restored now.
We will have to wait until the morning hours before (currently night in the Philippines) until we will have a report about eventual damage.
Update Nov. 3 10:12 UTC : Intensity values as reported by Phivolcs
Intensity V – Tandag, Surigao del Sur; General Luna, Siargao Island
Intensity IV – Surigao City; Dapa, Surigao Del Norte; Magallanes and Kitcharao,
Agusan del Norte; Butuan City; Socorro Siargao, Surigao del Norte; Tubajon and Cagdianao, Dinagat Province
Intensity III – Bislig City; Basilisa and Libjo Dinagat Province
Intensity II- Cebu City; Davao City; Santiago, Agusan del Norte; Magsaysay, Misamis Oriental
Good news from the Tandag area as at noon-time local time (10 hours after the earthquake), NO damage was reported. The area has also felt a number of aftershocks. A M4.6 was the strongest one so far.
Right after the quake, thousands of people auto-evacuated to higher grounds out of a tsunami fear, a wise decision although tsunamis are merely generated after massive earthquakes of at least M7.X.

Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases a Google Satellite Map to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list :
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
QuakeSOS+ and QuakeSOS free are iPhone applications developed by Armand Vervaeck, the founder of Earthquake Report. The Application simplifies immediate group communication to friends and family members (with your exact GPS location) and is feeding the users with Earthquake Report news. The 0.99 US$ QuakeSOS+ version will support the activities of SOS Earthquakes.
