Significant magnitude 6.2 quake hits 93 km southwest of Jinotepe, Nicaragua after midnight

6.2 quake 9 Nov 12:25 am (GMT -6)
6.2 quake 9 Nov 12:25 am (GMT -6)
Nicaragua was shaken near Jinotepe, Departamento de Carazo, by an earthquake of magnitude 6.2 only 14 minutes ago, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Jinotepe, Departamento de Carazo, Nicaragua, after midnight on Tuesday, November 9th, 2021, at 12:25 am 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.
A second report was later issued by France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.5 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 6.2.
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 Masachapa (pop. 5,000) located 66 km from the epicenter, San Rafael del Sur (pop. 29,800) 76 km away, Diriamba (pop. 35,000) 91 km away, Jinotepe (pop. 29,500) 93 km away, El Crucero (pop. 16,500) 97 km away, San Marcos (pop. 23,300) 98 km away, Nandaime (pop. 20,800) 100 km away, Masaya (pop. 130,100) 111 km away, Managua (pop. 973,100) 114 km away, and Leon (pop. 144,500) 129 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.
