Moderate 4.9 quake hits near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Kamchatka, Russia
4.9 quake 15 Aug 6:09 pm (GMT +11)
Just 18 minutes ago, a 4.9-magnitude earthquake struck near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Kamchatka, Russia. The tremor was recorded early evening on Monday, August 15th, 2022, at 6:09 pm local time, at a moderately shallow depth of 64 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.9 as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.9.
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 Vilyuchinsk (pop. 25,200) located 69 km from the epicenter, Paratunka (pop. 1,800) 77 km away, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy (pop. 187,300) 77 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Yelizovo (pop. 40,700) located 95 km from the epicenter.
