4.4 quake 3 Dec 5:40 pm (GMT +4:30)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.4 earthquake was reported in the afternoon near Ishqoshim, Ishkoshim, Gorno-Badakhshan, Tajikistan.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Friday, December 3rd, 2021, at 5:10 pm local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 221.7 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from India's National Center for Seismology (NCS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.0. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 4.2, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.4.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100, 25 km away), Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000, 33 km away), Jurm (pop. 12,100, 51 km away), Faizabad (pop. 44,400, 86 km away), and Faizabad (pop. 44,400, 86 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
