4.7 quake 2 Jul 9:14 pm (GMT +12)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported in the evening near Tauranga, Tauranga City, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
According to New Zealand's Earthquake Commission and Geological Survey (GeoNet), the quake hit on Friday 2 July 2021 at 9:14 pm local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 210.4 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.2.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Maketu (pop. 1,100) located 28 km from the epicenter, Tauranga (pop. 110,300) 40 km away, Kawerau (pop. 6,700) 63 km away, Rotorua (pop. 65,900) 73 km away, Rotorua (pop. 65,900) 73 km away, Matamata (pop. 6,300) 78 km away, Tokoroa (pop. 14,300) 100 km away, and Hamilton (pop. 152,600) 117 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
