Moderate magnitude 4.7 earthquake 54 km west of Novaya Chara, Russia
4.7 earthquake September 3 12:36 (GMT +8)
The event was recorded by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later released by the German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ), which also listed it as a magnitude 4.7 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same earthquake include the RaspberryShake Citizen Seismograph Network at magnitude 4.7 and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) at magnitude 4.7.
Based on preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused significant damage, but was likely felt by many people as a slight vibration in the epicenter area.
Weak tremors could have been felt at Chara (pop. 2,000) located 51 km from the epicenter, and at Novaya Chara (pop. 4,400) at 54 km.
Other towns near the epicenter where the quake could have been felt as a very weak tremor include Kuanda (pop. 9,600) located 104 km from the epicenter.
