Moderate magnitude 4.4 earthquake 35 km northwest of Kathmandu, Nepal
4.4 quake 6 Aug 5:26 am (GMT +5:45)
4.4 quake 6 Aug 5:26 am (GMT +5:45)
Just 25 minutes ago, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Kathmandu, Bagmati Province, Nepal. The tremor was recorded early morning on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, at 4:41 am local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.4 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 Kirtipur (pop. 44,600) located 33 km from the epicenter, Kathmandu (pop. 1,442,300) 35 km away, Patan (pop. 183,300) 36 km away, Madhyapur Thimi (pop. 83,000) 42 km away, and Hetauda (pop. 84,800) 49 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Banepā (pop. 17,200) located 57 km from the epicenter, Panauti̇̄ (pop. 27,600) 59 km away, Dhulikhel (pop. 16,300) 59 km away, and Bharatpur (pop. 107,200) 61 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.
