Moderate tremor of magnitude 4.2 just reported 19 km south of Nichinan, Japan

4.2 quake 1 Sep 8:21 pm (GMT +9)
Just 12 minutes ago, a 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck near Nichinan, Nichinan Shi, Miyazaki, Japan. The tremor was recorded in the evening on Thursday, September 1st, 2022, at 8:21 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 17.1 km below the surface.
The event was filed by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.7 earthquake. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.7.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Kushima (pop. 22,100) located 16 km from the epicenter, Nichinan (pop. 44,200) 19 km away, and Shibushi (pop. 18,300) 29 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Sueyoshichō-ninokata (pop. 20,000) located 44 km from the epicenter, Miyakonojō (pop. 131,000) 46 km away, Kanoya (pop. 82,300) 53 km away, Kokubu-matsuki (pop. 57,900) 69 km away, and Kagoshima (pop. 555,400) 82 km away.
