Significant magnitude 5.5 quake hits 98 km northwest of Barrancabermeja, Colombia in the morning

5.5 quake 23 Feb 7:49 am (GMT -5)
5.5 quake 23 Feb 7:49 am (GMT -5)
Just 11 minutes ago, a 5.5-magnitude earthquake struck near Barrancabermeja, Municipio de Barrancabermeja, Santander, Colombia. The tremor was recorded in the morning on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022, at 7:49 am local time, at a shallow depth of 13 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.9 earthquake. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.5.
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 Santa Rosa del Sur (pop. 8,900) located 27 km from the epicenter, San Carlos (pop. 22,700) 56 km away, El Bagre (pop. 40,800) 65 km away, and Morales (pop. 20,400) 65 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Aguachica (pop. 73,400) located 89 km from the epicenter, Segovia (pop. 39,900) 97 km away, and Barrancabermeja (pop. 191,400) 98 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.
