Magnitude 4.3 earthquake strikes near Reykjavik, Reykjavíkurborg, Capital Region, Iceland
4.3 quake 23 Jun 10:12 pm (GMT +0)
4.3 quake 23 Jun 10:12 pm (GMT +0)
A magnitude 4.3 earthquake near Reykjavik, Reykjavíkurborg, Capital Region, Iceland, was reported only 9 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter late at night on Thursday, June 23rd, 2022, at 10:12 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.4.
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 Reykholt (pop. 31) located 30 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Borgarnes (pop. 1,800) located 61 km from the epicenter, Mosfellsbaer (pop. 8,700) 71 km away, Mosfellsbær (pop. 8,700) 71 km away, Akranes (pop. 6,600) 75 km away, Reykjavik (pop. 118,900) 80 km away, Seltjarnarnes (pop. 4,300) 83 km away, Kopavogur (pop. 31,700) 83 km away, Garðabaer (pop. 11,400) 85 km away, and Hafnarfjordur (pop. 26,800) 87 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.

If you felt this quake (or if you were near the epicenter), please share your experience and submit a short "I felt it" report! Other users would love to hear about it!
If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
