Significant magnitude 5.1 earthquake 119 km southeast of China, Japan
5.1 quake 30 Nov 12:57 am (GMT +9)
An earthquake of magnitude 5.1 occurred only 15 minutes ago 119 km southeast of China, Japan, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near China, Ōshima-gun, Kagoshima, Japan, after midnight on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022, at 12:57 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 5.1 as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.1, and France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) at magnitude 5.3.
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 China (pop. 6,000) located 119 km from the epicenter, and Naga (pop. 59,600) 124 km away.
