Moderate magnitude 4.4 earthquake 19 km southeast of Catanzaro, Italy

4.4 quake 13 Oct 12:44 am (GMT +2)
4.4 quake 13 Oct 12:44 am (GMT +2)
The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 4.4 quake in Italy near Catanzaro, Provincia di Catanzaro, Calabria, only 18 minutes ago. The earthquake hit after midnight on Thursday, October 13th, 2022, at 12:44 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 4.4 as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) at magnitude 4.7, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 4.9.
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 Feudo de Seta (pop. 220) located 9 km from the epicenter, and Botricello (pop. 4,800) 12 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Catanzaro (pop. 79,000) located 19 km from the epicenter, Crotone (pop. 48,700) 39 km away, Lamezia Terme (pop. 70,500) 46 km away, Nicastro-Sambiase (pop. 55,700) 46 km away, Sambiase (pop. 20,000) 48 km away, and San Giovanni in Fiore (pop. 17,400) 48 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Vibo Valentia (pop. 19,300) located 64 km from the epicenter.
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.
