4.2 quake 16 Jul 10:39 am (GMT +3)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 occurred in the morning on Saturday, July 16th, 2022, at 10:39 am local time near Târgu Jiu, Municipiul Târgu Jiu, Gorj, Romania, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 10 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.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.1.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Bucureasa (pop. 390) located 1 km from the epicenter, and Târgu Jiu (pop. 97,200) 5 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Rovinari (pop. 12,300) located 14 km from the epicenter, Motru (pop. 22,300) 35 km away, Lupeni (pop. 30,500) 39 km away, and Vulcan (pop. 28,900) 42 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Petroşani (pop. 44,200) located 45 km from the epicenter, Petrila (pop. 25,200) 50 km away, and Drobeta-Turnu Severin (pop. 102,300) 67 km away.
