Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

9.748°N 126.774°E

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

55.1km (34.3mi)

Region : General Luna, Philippines

Magnitude 5.3 Earthquake of General Luna, Philippines 2014-10-27

Directions and Distances :Directions and Distances from Geographical Reference in Close Proximity Which can be effected by Location Uncertainty

a)  67km (42mi) E of General Luna, Philippines

b)  97km (60mi) NE of Tandag, Philippines

c)  129km (80mi) E of Placer, Philippines

141km (88mi) E of Surigao, Philippines

e)  828km (514mi) SE of Manila, Philippines

Location Uncertainty: 
5.3 mb
± 0.06
9.748°N, 126.774°E
55.1 km
± 5.1 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
324.0 km (2.91°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.16 sec

Azimuthal Gap4

1Number of phase Applied: 
In determining location of hypocenter, applied number of observations on P waves and S waves. The greater the more accurate prediction of EQ.

2Minimum Distance:
 Horizontal distance of nearest Station measured in Km from epicenter. The smaller the more accuracy in prediction of depth of EQ.

3Travel Time Residual:
 A way of measurement of fit of arrival time observed to arrival time predicted for particular location. The smaller the better fit of data.

4Azimuthal Gap: 
Expressed in degree; the smaller the smaller the error in horizontal positioning of EQ. Large uncertainty is considered when exceeds 180° (both depth and location)
