5.0 quake 12 Nov 8:12 pm (GMT +5:45)
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Dipayal, Doti, Sudurpashchim Pradesh, Nepal, early evening on Saturday, November 12th, 2022, at 7:27 pm local time. 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 identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1.
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 Dipayal (pop. 23,400) located 41 km from the epicenter, Dadeldhurā (pop. 19,000) 69 km away, Dharchula (pop. 18,300) 76 km away, Dharchula (pop. 7,300) 80 km away, Dailekh (pop. 20,900) 86 km away, Jumla (pop. 9,100) 94 km away, Tikapur (pop. 44,800) 110 km away, Dhangadhi (pop. 92,300) 110 km away, and Mahendranagar (pop. 88,400) 121 km away.
