Magnitude 4.8 earthquake strikes near Higuey, Higüey, Provincia de La Altagracia, Dominican Republic

4.8 quake 23 Oct 1:05 am (GMT -4)
4.8 quake 23 Oct 1:05 am (GMT -4)
An intermediate magnitude 4.8 earthquake was reported early morning near Higuey, Higüey, Provincia de La Altagracia, Dominican Republic.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Sunday, October 23rd, 2022, at 1:05 am local time at an intermediate depth of 136.8 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.
A second report was later issued by The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), which listed it as a magnitude 4.8 earthquake as well. A third agency, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, reported the same quake at magnitude 4.8.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Higuey (pop. 123,800) located 14 km from the epicenter, Yuma (pop. 5,300) 16 km away, Otra Banda (pop. 6,100) 20 km away, La Romana (pop. 208,400) 22 km away, Punta Cana (pop. 100,000) 41 km away, Quisqueya (pop. 17,700) 65 km away, Boca Chica (pop. 46,300) 86 km away, Bayaguana (pop. 21,100) 93 km away, and Santo Domingo (pop. 2,201,900) 116 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.
