Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.1 just reported 63 km west of Chinandega, Nicaragua

5.1 quake 14 Sep 2:44 am (GMT -6)
5.1 quake 14 Sep 2:44 am (GMT -6)
An earthquake of magnitude 5.1 occurred early morning on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022, at 2:44 am local time near Chinandega, Nicaragua, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 70 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.0 earthquake. A third agency, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, reported the same quake at magnitude 5.1.
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 Jiquilillo (pop. 4,100) located 30 km from the epicenter, El Viejo (pop. 53,500) 59 km away, Corinto (pop. 19,200) 61 km away, Chinandega (pop. 126,400) 63 km away, Chichigalpa (pop. 33,100) 74 km away, and Leon (pop. 144,500) 93 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.
