Moderate magnitude earthquake 4.7 – 61 km west of Murghab, Tajikistan
4.7 earthquake Sep 7 18:34 (GMT +5)
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the Indian National Seismological Center (NCS) that listed the quake as a magnitude 4.6. A third agency, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), reported the same 4.7 magnitude earthquake.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many as a slight vibration in the epicenter area.
Weak tremors could have been felt in Murghab (10,800 inhabitants) located 61 km from the epicenter.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update the magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant earthquake news becomes available.
