A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Hisai-motomachi, Tsu, Mie, Japan, was reported only 21 minutes ago by NIED, considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a great depth of 378.1 km beneath the epicenter early afternoon on Monday 18 January 2021 at 3:14 pm local time. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Hisai-motomachi (pop. 41,600, 22 km away), Ise (pop. 97,300, 29 km away), Tsu (pop. 163,500, 31 km away), Nabari (pop. 88,100, 31 km away), Ueno-ebisumachi (pop. 61,600, 39 km away), Kameyama (pop. 39,900, 42 km away), Suzuka (pop. 191,500, 49 km away), Yokkaichi (pop. 295,800, 58 km away), and Osaka (pop. 2,592,400, 84 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
