A shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported in the morning near Santa Cruz de Barahona, Barahona, Provincia de Barahona, Dominican Republic.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Saturday, June 4th, 2022, at 7:00 am local time at a shallow depth of 20 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.
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 Las Salinas (pop. 4,500) located 5 km from the epicenter, Cabral (pop. 12,300) 7 km away, Fundacion (pop. 2,500) 12 km away, El Peñon (pop. 4,100) 12 km away, Jaquimeyes (pop. 3,000) 15 km away, Vicente Noble (pop. 11,100) 19 km away, and Santa Cruz de Barahona (pop. 77,200) 19 km away.
