Moderate magnitude 4.6 earthquake 29 km west of Ensenada, Mexico
4.6 quake 14 Apr 9:30 pm (GMT -7)
4.6 quake 14 Apr 9:30 pm (GMT -7)
A shallow magnitude 4.6 earthquake was reported in the evening near Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Thursday, April 14th, 2022, at 9:30 pm local time at a shallow depth of 14.3 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.5.
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 Bajamar Santo Tomas (pop. 22) located 12 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Ensenada (pop. 279,800) located 29 km from the epicenter, Rodolfo Sanchez Taboada (pop. 23,000) 38 km away, Rosarito (pop. 65,300) 51 km away, Las Delicias (pop. 15,500) 55 km away, Villa del Prado 2da Seccion (pop. 18,200) 57 km away, La Joya (pop. 26,900) 60 km away, Porticos de San Antonio (pop. 34,200) 60 km away, and Tijuana (pop. 1,301,000) 66 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Tecate (pop. 64,800) located 77 km from the epicenter.
