Magnitude 5.3 earthquake strikes near Miyazaki, Japan
5.3 quake 2 May 4:08 pm (GMT +9)
5.3 quake 2 May 4:08 pm (GMT +9)
Japan was shaken near Miyazaki, by an earthquake of magnitude 5.3 only 13 minutes ago, Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 20.1 km beneath the epicenter near Miyazaki, Japan, in the afternoon on Monday, May 2nd, 2022, at 4:08 pm local time. 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 5.0. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.0, and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 5.0.
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 Nichinan (pop. 44,200) located 48 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Miyazaki (pop. 311,200) located 57 km from the epicenter, Kushima (pop. 22,100) 60 km away, Takanabe (pop. 22,500) 71 km away, Tsuma (pop. 34,300) 73 km away, Miyakonojō (pop. 131,000) 78 km away, Kobayashi (pop. 39,700) 95 km away, and Kanoya (pop. 82,300) 99 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.
