The quake struck at a great depth of 646 km below the epicenter near Bangkalan, East Java, Indonesia, early in the morning on Saturday, December 4, 2021, at 4:37 a.m. local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake could be revised within the next hours or minutes as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies publish their report.
A second report was later published by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), which also listed it as a 4.4 magnitude earthquake.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not assume that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Bangkalan (62,200 inhabitants, distance 63 km), Paciran (27,100 inhabitants, distance 77 km), Gresik (73,600 inhabitants, distance 78 km), Sampang (53,300 inhabitants, distance 79 km), Kebomas (76,000 inhabitants), 81 km away), Surabaya (2,374,700 inhabitants, 84 km away), Pamekasan (92,400 inhabitants, 89 km away), Lamongan (59,200 inhabitants, 90 km away) and Gedangan (79,200 inhabitants, 100 km away), the quake was probably not to feel.
