Significant magnitude 5.3 quake hits 31 km northwest of Kars, Turkey in the afternoon

5.3 quake 27 Sep 5:08 pm (GMT +3)
5.3 quake 27 Sep 5:08 pm (GMT +3)
A very shallow magnitude 5.3 earthquake was reported in the afternoon near Kars, Turkey.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Tuesday, September 27th, 2022, at 5:08 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 2 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.9. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.9.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Göle (pop. 11,900) located 15 km from the epicenter.
In Kars (pop. 77,500) located 31 km from the epicenter, Ardahan (pop. 21,000) 40 km away, and Sarıkamış (pop. 23,700) 50 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Oltu (pop. 23,500) located 71 km from the epicenter, and Kağızman (pop. 25,200) 72 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
