The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a magnitude 4.1 quake in Japan near the town of Rumoi only 12 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early morning on Friday 20 November 2020 at 2.21 am local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 210 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Rumoi (pop. 26,500, 21 km away), Fukagawa (pop. 26,200, 24 km away), Takikawa (pop. 45,100, 39 km away), Asahikawa (pop. 356,600, 40 km away), Akabira (pop. 14,200, 41 km away), Utashinai (pop. 5,200, 44 km away), Iwamizawa (pop. 85,100, 79 km away), and Ebetsu (pop. 134,000, 92 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
