Significant 5.0 quake hits near Te Anau, Southland District, Southland, New Zealand

5.0 quake 8 Oct 11:20 pm (GMT +13)
5.0 quake 8 Oct 11:20 pm (GMT +13)
New Zealand was shaken near Te Anau, Southland District, Southland, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.0 only 6 minutes ago, New Zealand's Earthquake Commission and Geological Survey (GeoNet) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 54.7 km beneath the epicenter near Te Anau, Southland District, Southland, New Zealand, late at night on Saturday, October 8th, 2022, at 11:20 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 5.0 as well.
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 Te Anau (pop. 2,900) located 40 km from the epicenter, Milford Sound (pop. 440) 64 km away, Queenstown (pop. 10,400) 98 km away, and Arthurs Point (pop. 1,300) 99 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.
