Moderate magnitude 4.0 earthquake 35 km west of Fukushima, Japan
4.0 quake 1 Dec 5:50 am (GMT +9)
4.0 quake 1 Dec 5:50 am (GMT +9)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.0 occurred only 10 minutes ago 35 km west of Fukushima, Japan, Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 8.7 km beneath the epicenter near Fukushima, Fukushima Shi, Japan, early morning on Wednesday, December 1st, 2021, at 5:50 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.8.
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 Yonezawa (pop. 94,500) located 17 km from the epicenter, Kitakata (pop. 37,100) 22 km away, Inawashiro (pop. 17,400) 23 km away, and Takahata (pop. 26,300) 28 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Fukushima (pop. 294,200) located 35 km from the epicenter, Nihommatsu (pop. 36,300) 38 km away, Motomiya (pop. 22,700) 41 km away, Kōriyama (pop. 340,600) 50 km away, and Sendai (pop. 1,063,100) 90 km away.
