4.5 quake 15 Jun 11:15 am (GMT +12)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred in the morning on Tuesday 15 June 2021 at 11:15 am local time near Atlasovo, Kamchatka, Russia, as reported by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 116 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 United States Geological Survey, which listed it as a magnitude 4.5 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Atlasovo (pop. 5,000) located 71 km from the epicenter, and Kozyrëvsk (pop. 1,200) 110 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
