Moderate yet deep 5.5 quake hits near Tarauaca, Acre, Brazil

5.5 quake 7 Jun 7:55 pm (GMT -5)
5.5 quake 7 Jun 7:55 pm (GMT -5)
A very deep magnitude 5.5 earthquake was reported early evening near Tarauaca, Acre, Brazil.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022, at 7:55 pm local time at a great depth of 592 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 the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 5.5 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.7.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Tarauaca (pop. 16,500, 105 km away), and Feijo (pop. 13,000, 127 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
