Moderate magnitude 4.3 earthquake 56 km southwest of Beykonak, Turkey
4.3 quake 7 Aug 11:02 am (GMT +3)
Just 10 minutes ago, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Beykonak, Antalya, Turkey. The tremor was recorded in the morning on Sunday, August 7th, 2022, at 11:02 am local time, at a shallow depth of 29 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.5. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.0, and the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) at magnitude 4.2.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Kas (pop. 7,800) located 9 km from the epicenter, and Demre (pop. 14,400) 26 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Finike (pop. 9,300) located 41 km from the epicenter, Turuncova (pop. 8,400) 45 km away, Beykonak (pop. 30,300) 56 km away, Elmalı (pop. 16,600) 68 km away, Fethiye (pop. 60,400) 76 km away, and Tekirova (pop. 20,000) 82 km away.
