Magnitude 4.9 earthquake strikes near Doda, Jammu and Kashmir, India
4.9 quake 11 Jan 7:32 pm (GMT +5:30)
4.9 quake 11 Jan 7:32 pm (GMT +5:30)
A shallow magnitude 4.9 earthquake was reported early evening near Doda, Jammu and Kashmir, India.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Monday 11 January 2021 at 7:02 pm local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Doda (pop. 17,700) located 16 km from the epicenter, Kishtwār (pop. 20,600) 18 km away, and Rāmban (pop. 7,300) 32 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Bhadarwāh (pop. 13,400) located 37 km from the epicenter, Banihal (pop. 3,300) 39 km away, Udhampur (pop. 80,400) 58 km away, Anantnag (pop. 79,800) 63 km away, Bijbehara (pop. 24,600) 71 km away, and janmu (pop. 465,600) 91 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Srinagar (pop. 975,900) located 114 km from the epicenter.
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.
