Significant magnitude 5.4 earthquake 91 km southeast of Hachinohe, Japan
5.4 quake 9 Jun 10:05 pm (GMT +9)
5.4 quake 9 Jun 10:05 pm (GMT +9)
A magnitude 5.4 earthquake near Hachinohe, Hachinohe Shi, Aomori, 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 32.8 km beneath the epicenter late at night on Wednesday 9 June 2021 at 10:05 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 4.9. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.2.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Miyako (pop. 51,700) located 69 km from the epicenter, Yamada (pop. 20,100) 85 km away, Hachinohe (pop. 239,000) 91 km away, Ōtsuchi (pop. 16,500) 97 km away, Ichinohe (pop. 15,800) 100 km away, Kamaishi (pop. 43,100) 107 km away, and Morioka (pop. 295,200) 121 km away.
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.
