Just 17 minutes ago, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Shikotan, Sakhalin Oblast, Russia. The tremor was recorded in the morning on Monday 10 May 2021 at 10:40 am local time, at a moderately shallow depth of 40 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
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 Shikotan (pop. 2,100) located 73 km from the epicenter.
