Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) reported a magnitude 4.5 quake in Russia near Nemuro, Nemuro-shi, Hokkaido, only 12 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early morning on Sunday 30 May 2021 at 1:30 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 44.1 km. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Shikotan (pop. 2,100) located 58 km from the epicenter, Nemuro (pop. 31,200) 69 km away, Yuzhno-Kurilsk (pop. 6,500) 90 km away, Otrada (pop. 3,200) 94 km away, and Shibetsu (pop. 21,700) 111 km away.
