Just 20 minutes ago, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck near Miyanoura, Kumage-gun, Kagoshima, Japan. The tremor was recorded after midnight on Wednesday, May 18th, 2022, at 12:34 am local time, at a moderately shallow depth of 60 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.7 as well. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.7.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Kurio (pop. 1,800) located 73 km from the epicenter, Koseda (pop. 2,300) 81 km away, Nagata (pop. 1,200) 86 km away, and Miyanoura (pop. 6,500) 86 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.

If you felt this quake (or if you were near the epicenter), please share your experience and submit a short "I felt it" report! Other users would love to hear about it!
If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
