Significant 5.4 quake hits near Mutsu, Mutsu-shi, Aomori, Japan
5.4 quake 13 Sep 9:51 am (GMT +9)
A magnitude 5.4 earthquake near Mutsu, Mutsu-shi, Aomori, Japan, was reported only 14 minutes ago by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 56.9 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Tuesday, September 13th, 2022, at 9:51 am local time. 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 the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.9. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.4, and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 4.9.
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 Mutsu (pop. 49,200) located 76 km from the epicenter, Shizunai-furukawachō (pop. 22,400) 88 km away, Hakodate (pop. 275,700) 111 km away, Muroran (pop. 96,200) 120 km away, Tomakomai (pop. 174,800) 123 km away, and Hachinohe (pop. 239,000) 128 km away.
