An earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred only 16 minutes ago 43 km northeast of Qūchān, Iran, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Qūchān, Razavi Khorasan, Iran, in the morning on Monday, September 13th, 2021, at 8:02 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 European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.9 earthquake.
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 Qūchān (pop. 111,800) located 43 km from the epicenter, Kaka (pop. 18,500) 62 km away, Annau (pop. 27,500) 72 km away, Chinaran (pop. 46,900) 77 km away, Achgabat (pop. 727,700) 84 km away, and Shīrvān (pop. 82,800) 87 km away.
