Just 12 minutes ago, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck near Ikedachō, Miyoshi Shi, Tokushima, Japan. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Sunday 18 July 2021 at 2:35 pm local time, at a moderately shallow depth of 44.2 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake.
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 Ikedachō (pop. 15,900) located 13 km from the epicenter, Wakimachi (pop. 17,700) 23 km away, Kan'onjichō (pop. 44,400) 31 km away, Marugame (pop. 82,100) 37 km away, Sakaidechō (pop. 57,100) 40 km away, Kamojimachō-jōgejima (pop. 24,400) 41 km away, Ishii (pop. 26,400) 49 km away, and Tokushima (pop. 267,300) 60 km away.
