Significant magnitude 6.4 earthquake 77 km southwest of Chinandega, Nicaragua

6.4 quake 22 Sep 3:57 am (GMT -6)
6.4 quake 22 Sep 3:57 am (GMT -6)
An earthquake of magnitude 6.4 occurred only 12 minutes ago 77 km southwest of Chinandega, Nicaragua, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 57 km beneath the epicenter near Chinandega, Departamento de Chinandega, Nicaragua, early morning on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021, at 3:57 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.
A second report was later issued by the United States Geological Survey, which listed it as a magnitude 6.7 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 6.6.
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 Corinto (pop. 19,200) located 64 km from the epicenter, El Realejo (pop. 6,200) 69 km away, El Viejo (pop. 53,500) 77 km away, Chinandega (pop. 126,400) 77 km away, Chichigalpa (pop. 33,100) 83 km away, Leon (pop. 144,500) 92 km away, and Managua (pop. 973,100) 157 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. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
