An earthquake of magnitude 4.1 occurred only 11 minutes ago 43 km southwest of Sanandij, Iran, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
4.1 quake 8 May 12:18 am (GMT +4:30)
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Sanandij, Ostān-e Kordestān, Iran, late at night on Friday 7 May 2021 at 11:48 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.1 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Pāveh (pop. 17,800) located 23 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Javānrūd (pop. 38,700) located 39 km from the epicenter, Sanandij (pop. 349,200) 43 km away, Kāmyārān (pop. 61,600) 50 km away, Halabja (pop. 57,300) 54 km away, Marivan (pop. 91,700) 55 km away, and Kahrīz (pop. 766,700) 95 km away.
