A magnitude 5.8 earthquake near Hakha, Chin State, Myanmar (Burma), was reported only 20 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 42.1 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Friday, November 26th, 2021, at 5:45 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 Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), which listed it as a magnitude 6.1 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 6.0, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.8.

Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Hakha (pop. 20,000) located 21 km from the epicenter, Palan (pop. 5,400) 22 km away, Saiha (pop. 22,700) 64 km away, Lunglei (pop. 52,700) 79 km away, and Serchhip (pop. 20,200) 87 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Mawlaik (pop. 44,500) located 131 km from the epicenter.
