Magnitude 4.6 earthquake strikes near Beykonak, Antalya, Turkey

4.6 quake 2 Nov 7:41 pm (GMT +2)
4.6 quake 2 Nov 7:41 pm (GMT +2)
A magnitude 4.6 earthquake near Beykonak, Antalya, Turkey, was reported only 13 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 64 km beneath the epicenter early evening on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022, at 7:41 pm 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.
A second report was later issued by the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), which listed it as a magnitude 4.8 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 4.6, the Kandilli Oservatory and Earthquake Research Institute in Istanbul (KOERI-RETMC) at magnitude 4.7, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.3.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Çıralı (pop. 500) located 75 km from the epicenter, Beykonak (pop. 30,300) 77 km away, Tekirova (pop. 20,000) 82 km away, Finike (pop. 9,300) 86 km away, Kemer (pop. 17,300) 91 km away, Turuncova (pop. 8,400) 91 km away, Demre (pop. 14,400) 94 km away, and Göynük (pop. 6,000) 98 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.
