Significant 5.0 quake hits near Dazhong, Jiangsu, China

5.0 quake 17 Nov 1:54 pm (GMT +8)
5.0 quake 17 Nov 1:54 pm (GMT +8)
A shallow magnitude 5.0 earthquake was reported around noon near Dazhong, Jiangsu, China.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Wednesday, November 17th, 2021, at 1:54 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 5.1. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.0.
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 Dazhong (pop. 84,300) located 67 km from the epicenter, Hede (pop. 89,100) 84 km away, Yancheng (pop. 628,400) 89 km away, Dongtai (pop. 111,000) 101 km away, and Qinnan (pop. 56,000) 113 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.
