According to preliminary data, the earthquake was located at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deep ones because they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the coming hours or minutes, as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or when other agencies release their report.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake was likely felt by many people in the epicenter area. It should not have caused any significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken glass, etc.
In Bangsal (100 inhabitants) located 7 km from the epicenter, the earthquake should have been felt as slight tremors.
Weak tremors were felt in Labuan Lombok (10,000 inhabitants) located 39 km from the epicenter, and Labuan Lombok (10,000 inhabitants) at 39 km.
