Strong magnitude 6.1 earthquake - Philippine Sea, 33 km southeast of Yilan, Taiwan

Magnitude 6.1 earthquake strikes near Yilan, Taiwan

An earthquake of magnitude 6.1 occurred around noon on Sunday, October 24th, 2021, at 1:11 pm local time near Yilan, Taiwan, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).

According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a moderately shallow depth of 66 km. 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.

Our monitoring service identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 6.1 as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.4, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 6.5.
