A shallow magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported in the morning near Severo-Kuril'sk, Sakhalin Oblast, Russia.
5.0 quake 23 Jun 11:45 am (GMT +10)
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, at 11:45 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.2 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) at magnitude 5.4, and the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.0.
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 Severo-Kuril'sk (pop. 2,400) located 90 km from the epicenter.
