#4: 4.7 quake 18 km WSW of As Sulaymānīyah, Iraq, 10 Nov 2.18 am (GMT +3) - 13 reports

A shallow magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported early morning near the city of As Sulaymānīyah, Iraq.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Tuesday 10 November 2020 at 2.18 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.7 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in As Sulaymānīyah (pop. 723,200) located 18 km from the epicenter, Jamjamāl (pop. 75,600) 37 km away, Baynjiwayn (pop. 27,100) 65 km away, Kirkuk (pop. 601,400) 77 km away, Ḩalabjah (pop. 57,300) 78 km away, Bāneh (pop. 104,800) 79 km away, Koysinceq (pop. 45,000) 83 km away, and Saqqez (pop. 151,200) 124 km away.
