A magnitude 5.5 earthquake near Shwebo, Shwebo District, Sagaing Region, Myanmar (Burma), was reported only 13 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 149 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Friday, September 30th, 2022, at 4:22 am local time. 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.5 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 5.6.
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 Mawlaik (pop. 44,500) located 82 km from the epicenter, Shwebo (pop. 88,900) 97 km away, and Monywa (pop. 182,000) 112 km away.
