Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.8 just reported 52 km northeast of Miyako, Japan
5.8 quake 6 Oct 2:46 am (GMT +9)
5.8 quake 6 Oct 2:46 am (GMT +9)
A moderately shallow magnitude 5.8 earthquake was reported early morning near Miyako, Miyako-shi, Iwate, Japan.
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021, at 2:46 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 56 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS) which listed the quake at magnitude 6.0. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 6.1, and Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) at magnitude 6.5.
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 Miyako (pop. 51,700) located 52 km from the epicenter, Yamada (pop. 20,100) 68 km away, Ōtsuchi (pop. 16,500) 80 km away, Kamaishi (pop. 43,100) 90 km away, Hachinohe (pop. 239,000) 92 km away, and Ichinohe (pop. 15,800) 95 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Morioka (pop. 295,200) located 108 km from the epicenter, and Kitakami (pop. 93,900) 132 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.

If you felt this quake (or if you were near the epicenter), please share your experience and submit a short "I felt it" report! Other users would love to hear about it!
If you did NOT feel the quake although you were in the area, please report it! Your contribution is valuable to earthquake science, seismic hazard analysis and mitigation efforts. You can use your device location or the map to indicate where you were during the earthquake. Thank you!

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
