A shallow magnitude 5.3 earthquake was reported in the morning near Miyako, Miyako-shi, Iwate, Japan.
5.3 quake 9 Jun 7:34 am (GMT +9)
According to Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), the quake hit on Wednesday 9 June 2021 at 7:34 am local time at a shallow depth of 29.7 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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 4.9 earthquake.
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 Miyako (pop. 51,700) located 38 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Yamada (pop. 20,100) located 53 km from the epicenter, Ōtsuchi (pop. 16,500) 64 km away, Kamaishi (pop. 43,100) 74 km away, Tōno (pop. 26,800) 89 km away, Ichinohe (pop. 15,800) 93 km away, Hachinohe (pop. 239,000) 97 km away, and Morioka (pop. 295,200) 98 km away.
