Significant 6.2 quake hits near Hachinohe, Japan

6.2 quake 21 Dec 3:23 am (GMT +10)
An earthquake of magnitude 6.2 occurred only 13 minutes ago 106 km northeast of Hachinohe, Japan, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 40 km beneath the epicenter near Hachinohe, Hachinohe Shi, Aomori, Japan, early morning on Monday 21 December 2020 at 3:23 am 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) which listed the quake at magnitude 6.5. Other agencies reporting the same quake include NIED at magnitude 6.6, and German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 6.3.
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.
In Hachinohe (pop. 239,000) located 106 km from the epicenter, Misawa (pop. 42,800) 112 km away, Ichinohe (pop. 15,800) 133 km away, Miyako (pop. 51,700) 136 km away, and Mutsu (pop. 49,200) 142 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.

Hachinohe (101.4 km WSW of epicenter) [Map] / Very strong shaking (MMI VII) / complex motion difficult to describe / 10-15 s : I was watching on demand television during my visit to my step fathers house for Christmas. The earthquake was expected because it was tiny rattling before a huge shake happened. I was able to catch about 5 seconds of the earthquake.  
Misawa (108.3 km WSW of epicenter) [Map] / Strong shaking (MMI VI) / both vertical and horizontal swinging / 10-15 s : It was my first earthquake so it was very shocking. Nothing broke but many things fell.
