A magnitude 4.6 earthquake near Āsmār, Bar Kunaṟ, Kunar, Afghanistan, was reported only 19 minutes ago by India's National Center for Seismology (NCS), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate to considerable depth of 287.5 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Tuesday 25 May 2021 at 6:34 am local time. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Dīr (pop. 29,900, 26 km away), Āsmār (pop. 15,700, 49 km away), Thal (pop. 29,300, 52 km away), Bat Khela (pop. 46,100, 89 km away), and Mingora (pop. 279,900, 91 km away), the quake was probably not felt.

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.
