Moderate magnitude 4.2 quake hits 17 km north of Tajimi, Japan in the afternoon

4.2 quake 17 km north of Tajimi, Gifu, Japan, Aug 7, 2022 5:49 pm (GMT +9)
4.2 quake 17 km north of Tajimi, Gifu, Japan, Aug 7, 2022 5:49 pm (GMT +9)
An intermediate to deep magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported in the afternoon near Tajimi, Tajimi-shi, Gifu, Japan.
According to Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), the quake hit on Sunday, August 7th, 2022, at 5:49 pm local time at an intermediate to considerable depth of 288.1 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In Mitake (pop. 19,300, 7 km away), Toki (pop. 61,400, 13 km away), Mizunami (pop. 42,600, 13 km away), Minokamo (pop. 51,500, 14 km away), Tajimi (pop. 107,800, 17 km away), Seto (pop. 134,200, 27 km away), Kakamigahara (pop. 132,200, 28 km away), Gifu City (pop. 397,700, 38 km away), and Nagoya (pop. 2,191,300, 40 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
