4.2 quake 23 Jul 6:57 pm (GMT +5:45)
A shallow magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported early evening near Khā̃dbāri̇̄, Sankhuwasabha, Province 1, Nepal.
According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the quake hit on Friday 23 July 2021 at 6:12 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.
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 Khā̃dbāri̇̄ (pop. 22,900) located 32 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Dhankuta (pop. 22,100) located 54 km from the epicenter, Triyuga (pop. 71,400) 58 km away, Dharan (pop. 108,600) 64 km away, Itahari (pop. 48,000) 78 km away, Inaruwa (pop. 70,100) 79 km away, and Biratnagar (pop. 182,300) 99 km away.
