Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.5 just reported 90 km northwest of Queenstown, New Zealand

5.5 quake 5 Jul 3:29 am (GMT +12)
5.5 quake 5 Jul 3:29 am (GMT +12)
A very shallow magnitude 5.5 earthquake was reported early morning near Queenstown, Queenstown-Lakes District, Otago, New Zealand.
According to New Zealand's Earthquake Commission and Geological Survey (GeoNet), the quake hit on Tuesday, July 5th, 2022, at 3:29 am local time at a very shallow depth of 5 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Milford Sound (pop. 440) located 60 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Wanaka (pop. 4,400) located 79 km from the epicenter, Arrowtown (pop. 2,200) 84 km away, and Queenstown (pop. 10,400) 90 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.
