Moderate magnitude 4.3 earthquake 56 km southwest of Beykonak, Turkey

4.3 quake 7 Aug 11:02 am (GMT +3)
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.
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.
