A magnitude 4.0 earthquake near Mashhad, Razavi Khorasan, Iran, was reported only 17 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 8 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Wednesday, May 25th, 2022, at 8:52 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.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Chinaran (pop. 46,900) located 52 km from the epicenter, Mashhad (pop. 2,307,200) 53 km away, and Kaka (pop. 18,500) 65 km away.

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
