Update Thu, 2 Dec 2021, 16:51Moderate magnitude 4.3 earthquake 68 km southeast of Faizabad, Afghanistan
4.3 quake 2 Dec 9:09 pm (GMT +4:30)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.3 occurred in the evening on Thursday, December 2nd, 2021, at 8:39 pm local time near Faizabad, Faīẕābād, Badakhshan, Afghanistan, as reported by India's National Center for Seismology (NCS).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 192.9 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Jurm (pop. 12,100, 32 km away), Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100, 42 km away), Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000, 50 km away), and Faizabad (pop. 44,400, 68 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
