An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred only 22 minutes ago 34 km southeast of Jurm, Afghanistan, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
4.4 quake 12 Jan 9:17 am (GMT +4:30)
The quake hit at an intermediate to considerable depth of 209 km beneath the epicenter near Jurm, Badakhshan, Afghanistan, in the morning on Tuesday 12 January 2021 at 8:47 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.
A second report was later issued by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Jurm (pop. 12,100, 34 km away), Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100, 45 km away), Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000, 53 km away), and Fayzabad (pop. 44,400, 70 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
