Magnitude 4.9 earthquake strikes near Faizabad, Faīẕābād, Badakhshan, Afghanistan
4.9 quake 18 May 12:16 pm (GMT +4:30)
4.9 quake 18 May 12:16 pm (GMT +4:30)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.9 occurred in the morning on Wednesday, May 18th, 2022, at 11:46 am local time near Faizabad, Faīẕābād, Badakhshan, Afghanistan, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 80 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.
A second report was later issued by India's National Center for Seismology (NCS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 4.9, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.1.
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 Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100) located 28 km from the epicenter, Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000) 33 km away, Jurm (pop. 12,100) 38 km away, and Faizabad (pop. 44,400) 69 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Khandūd (pop. 5,500) located 95 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.
