Magnitude 4.5 earthquake strikes near Padam, Kargil, Ladakh, India

4.5 quake 13 Sep 9:16 am (GMT +5:30)
4.5 quake 13 Sep 9:16 am (GMT +5:30)
India's National Center for Seismology (NCS) reported a magnitude 4.5 quake in India near Padam, Kargil, Ladakh, only 10 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Monday, September 13th, 2021, at 8:46 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. 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.
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 Padam (pop. 25,000) located 43 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Kishtwār (pop. 20,600) located 71 km from the epicenter, Bhadarwāh (pop. 13,400) 96 km away, Doda (pop. 17,700) 97 km away, and Kargil (pop. 13,800) 111 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
