Moderate 4.6 quake hits near Port au Prince, Port-au-Prince, Département de l'Ouest, Haiti

4.6 quake 25 Jan 1:51 pm (GMT -5)
4.6 quake 25 Jan 1:51 pm (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.6 occurred only 18 minutes ago 47 km northwest of Port au Prince, Haiti, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 30 km beneath the epicenter near Port au Prince, Port-au-Prince, Département de l'Ouest, Haiti, around noon on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022, at 1:51 pm 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 German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.6 as well.
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 Port au Prince (pop. 1,234,700) located 47 km from the epicenter.
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.
