The quake was roughly one hundred miles from the Northern Mariana Islands. It was one hundred-thirty nine miles from Rota, two hundred sixteen miles from Saipan, and nearly three hundred miles from Anathan.

One of Guam’s worse quakes was the August 8, 1993 quake. That 7.8 magnitude quake was centered south of the Marina Islands. Forty-eight people were injured, while extensive structural damage was located in Tumon Bay hotels. “Many landslides and rockslides were reported, mainly in the southern half of the island” USGS reported to news at the time. “One end of the approach to a bridge at Pago Bay fell more than 35 cm.”

In May 2008, a 6.7 magnitude quake struck the region. Compared to today’s quake, the 2008 quake was substantially further away from Guam, nearly one hundred twenty-five miles. Its epicenter was also double the depth of today’s quake.
