The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 5.0 quake in the Solomon Islands near Kirakira, Nakumwe, Makira-Ulawa Province, only 14 minutes ago. The earthquake hit around noon on Friday, August 5th, 2022, at 1:37 pm local time at an intermediate depth of 135 km. 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.
