4.2 quake 23 km north of Gisborne, New Zealand, 16 Jun 10:43 am (GMT +12)
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake near Gisborne, Gisborne District, New Zealand, was reported only 7 minutes ago by New Zealand's Earthquake Commission and Geological Survey (GeoNet), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in New Zealand. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 18.2 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Wednesday 16 June 2021 at 10:43 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake as well.
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 Te Karaka (pop. 590) located 17 km from the epicenter, and Gisborne (pop. 34,300) 23 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Opotiki (pop. 4,000) located 83 km from the epicenter.
