Moderate magnitude 4.4 quake hits 69 km north of Nagua, Dominican Republic early afternoon

4.4 quake 9 Sep 3:24 pm (GMT -4)
4.4 quake 9 Sep 3:24 pm (GMT -4)
The citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake reported a magnitude 4.4 quake in the Dominican Republic near Nagua, Provincia Maria Trinidad Sanchez, only 24 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early afternoon on Friday, September 9th, 2022, at 3:24 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 6.9 km. 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.
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 Cabrera (pop. 4,900) located 40 km from the epicenter, and Rio San Juan (pop. 9,000) 42 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Nagua (pop. 33,900) located 69 km from the epicenter, Monte Llano (pop. 19,000) 75 km away, Puerto Plata (pop. 146,000) 81 km away, San Francisco de Macoris (pop. 124,800) 84 km away, Salcedo (pop. 45,300) 85 km away, Moca (pop. 61,800) 91 km away, and Santiago de los Caballeros (pop. 1,200,000) 100 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.
