4.7 quake Afghanistan-Tajikistan Border Region 1 Aug 1:46 pm (GMT +4:30)
An intermediate magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported around noon near Faizabad, Faīẕābād, Badakhshan, Afghanistan.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Sunday 1 August 2021 at 1:16 pm local time at an intermediate depth of 99 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 4.7 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Ishqoshim (pop. 26,000) located 35 km from the epicenter, Ashkāsham (pop. 12,100) 36 km away, Jurm (pop. 12,100) 53 km away, Faizabad (pop. 44,400) 75 km away, and Khandūd (pop. 5,500) 81 km away.
