An earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred around noon on Friday 26 March 2021 at 12:48 pm local time near Shizunai-furukawachō, Hidaka-gun, Hokkaido, Japan, as reported by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a moderately shallow depth of 48.5 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3.
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 Shizunai-furukawachō (pop. 22,400) located 40 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Obihiro (pop. 173,900) located 97 km from the epicenter, Otofuke (pop. 40,900) 104 km away, and Tomakomai (pop. 174,800) 110 km away.
