Moderate magnitude 4.7 earthquake 62 km west of Quetta, Afghanistan

4.7 quake 27 May 1:54 pm (GMT +5)
4.7 quake 27 May 1:54 pm (GMT +5)
A shallow magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported around noon near Quetta, Quetta District, Balochistan, Pakistan.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Thursday 27 May 2021 at 1:54 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from India's National Center for Seismology (NCS) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.4. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.5.
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 Mastung (pop. 29,100) located 62 km from the epicenter, Quetta (pop. 733,700) 62 km away, Nushki (pop. 27,700) 75 km away, and Pishin (pop. 24,200) 77 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Chaman (pop. 88,600) located 85 km from the epicenter, and Mach (pop. 16,900) 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.
