UPDATE: the quake was upgraded to a magnitude 5.0 event; judging from the large number of users reporting on it, it might well be the so-far largest event.
Original report:
Just as we reported that quakes had been less intense recently, a strong magnitude 4.6 tremor, one of the strongest since the start of the crisis, hit the island at 34 km depth 20 minutes ago, at 5.52 p.m.
The quake was widely felt all over the island.
