Magnitude 4.3 earthquake strikes near Managua, Departamento de Managua, Nicaragua

4.3 quake 23 May 6:41 am (GMT -6)
Just 15 minutes ago, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Managua, Departamento de Managua, Nicaragua. The tremor was recorded early morning on Sunday 23 May 2021 at 6:41 am local time, at an intermediate to considerable depth of 171 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the United States Geological Survey which listed the quake at magnitude 4.3 as well.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Nagarote (pop. 26,300, 8 km away), La Paz Centro (pop. 23,500, 21 km away), Ciudad Sandino (pop. 50,000, 23 km away), Managua (pop. 973,100, 33 km away), El Crucero (pop. 16,500, 35 km away), San Rafael del Sur (pop. 29,800, 41 km away), Leon (pop. 144,500, 44 km away), Tipitapa (pop. 50,000, 49 km away), and San Marcos (pop. 23,300, 50 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
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.
