Earthquakes Today Near Guam: Second Quake Hits Near Island

February 4, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

A second earthquake hit near Guam–this one closer than the last one.

The 5.0 magnitude quake hit just 34 miles from Inarajan Mayor’s Office and 37 miles from Mangilao Village.

It hit at a depth of 12.2 miles.

A previous quake, 5.5 magnitude, hit about 38 miles off the coast, but much deeper.

A quake at similar magnitude and depth to that one shook the whole island in January 2012 but did little to no damage.
