Magnitude 4.7 earthquake strikes near Xunchang, Sichuan, China

4.7 quake 6 Apr 7:50 am (GMT +8)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.7 occurred in the morning on Wednesday, April 6th, 2022, at 7:50 am local time near Xunchang, Sichuan, China, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located 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. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 4.7, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.3.
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 Xunchang (pop. 64,600) located 31 km from the epicenter, and Xuzhou Cheng (pop. 242,100) 65 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Bijie (pop. 77,600) located 110 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.
