Significant magnitude 5.1 earthquake 89 km southwest of Jinotepe, Nicaragua
5.1 quake 21 Jul 7:28 pm (GMT -6)
5.1 quake 21 Jul 7:28 pm (GMT -6)
The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 5.1 quake in Nicaragua near Jinotepe, Departamento de Carazo, only 14 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early evening on Wednesday 21 July 2021 at 7:28 pm local time at a moderately shallow depth of 50 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.2 earthquake.
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 Masachapa (pop. 5,000) located 56 km from the epicenter, San Rafael del Sur (pop. 29,800) 67 km away, Diriamba (pop. 35,000) 86 km away, Jinotepe (pop. 29,500) 89 km away, Ciudad Sandino (pop. 50,000) 98 km away, Managua (pop. 973,100) 103 km away, and Leon (pop. 144,500) 106 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.
