A magnitude 4.5 earthquake near Shizunai-furukawachō, Hidaka-gun, Hokkaido, Japan, was reported only 12 minutes ago by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), considered the main national agency that monitors seismic activity in this part of the world. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 59.5 km beneath the epicenter in the afternoon on Sunday 28 March 2021 at 5:12 pm 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.2.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Shizunai-furukawachō (pop. 22,400) located 40 km from the epicenter, and Tomakomai (pop. 174,800) 107 km away.
