A magnitude 4.6 earthquake near Daroot-Korgon, Alay District, Osh Oblasty, Kyrgyzstan, was reported 37 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 60 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Friday 22 January 2021 at 10:02 am local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.6 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 Daroot-Korgon (pop. 4,700) located 25 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Karakenja (pop. 2,900) located 47 km from the epicenter, Karakenja (pop. 2,900) 47 km away, Karakenja (pop. 2,900) 47 km away, Shohimardon (pop. 5,100) 71 km away, Kzyl-Kiya (pop. 32,000) 99 km away, and Iradan (pop. 26,200) 100 km away.
