An earthquake of magnitude 6.1 occurred in the afternoon on Monday, November 14th, 2022, at 5:08 pm local time near Ise, Ise-shi, Mie, Japan, as reported by the United States Geological Survey.
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a great depth of 357.4 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 Geoscience Australia (GeoAu), which listed it as a magnitude 6.2 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 6.1, Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) at magnitude 6.9, France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) at magnitude 5.8, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 6.1, and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 6.0.

Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
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 Toba (pop. 23,300) located 85 km from the epicenter, Ise (pop. 97,300) 91 km away, Tahara (pop. 38,200) 96 km away, Toyohashi-shi (pop. 378,400) 108 km away, Hamamatsu (pop. 605,100) 109 km away, and Tsu (pop. 163,500) 124 km away.
