The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 5.0 quake in the Solomon Islands near Kirakira, Nakumwe, Makira-Ulawa Province, only 14 minutes ago. The earthquake hit around noon on Friday, August 5th, 2022, at 1:37 pm local time at an intermediate depth of 135 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 France's Réseau National de Surveillance Sismique (RéNaSS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.4 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.0, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.3.

Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Kirakira (pop. 1,100) located 46 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.
