Magnitude 4.1 earthquake strikes near Wakkanai, Wakkanai Shi, Hokkaido, Japan
4.1 quake 16 Aug 6:54 pm (GMT +9)

Just 12 minutes ago, a 4.1-magnitude earthquake struck near Wakkanai, Wakkanai Shi, Hokkaido, Japan. The tremor was recorded early evening on Tuesday, August 16th, 2022, at 6:54 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.1 earthquake as well. A third agency, Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.0.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Nakagawa (pop. 1,600) located 10 km from the epicenter, Horonobe (pop. 2,400) 23 km away, and Toyotomi (pop. 4,100) 34 km away.

Small magnitude 3.0 earthquake 22 miles southeast of Pecos, Texas, United States
3.0 quake 15 Aug 6:45 pm (GMT -5)

A very shallow magnitude 3.0 earthquake was reported early evening near Pecos, Reeves County, Texas, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Monday, August 15th, 2022, at 6:45 pm local time at a very shallow depth of 3.1 miles. 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 3.0 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.0.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Coyanosa (pop. 160) located 12 miles from the epicenter. In Pecos (pop. 9,500, 22 miles away), Fort Stockton (pop. 8,600, 30 miles away), and Monahans (pop. 7,700, 36 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.

Significant earthquake of magnitude 5.4 just reported 4 km northwest of Digos, Philippines
5.4 quake 15 Aug 4:23 pm (GMT +8)

Just 13 minutes ago, a 5.4-magnitude earthquake struck near Digos, Davao del Sur, Davao, Philippines. The tremor was recorded in the afternoon on Monday, August 15th, 2022, at 4:23 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), which listed it as a magnitude 5.6 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 5.3, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.6.
Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Matti (pop. 4,800) located 2 km from the epicenter, Digos (pop. 116,100) 4 km away, Bansalan (pop. 21,400) 12 km away, and Magsaysay (pop. 16,600) 15 km away.
In Santa Maria (pop. 16,800) located 28 km from the epicenter, Kidapawan (pop. 79,700) 38 km away, and Maluñgun (pop. 52,200) 54 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in General Santos City (pop. 679,600) located 74 km from the epicenter, and Budta (pop. 1,273,700) 109 km away.

Magnitude 4.4 earthquake strikes near San Antonio de los Cobres, Departamento de Los Andes, Salta, Argentina
4.4 quake 14 Aug 5:59 pm (GMT -3)

An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred in the afternoon on Sunday, August 14th, 2022, at 5:59 pm local time near San Antonio de los Cobres, Departamento de Los Andes, Salta, Argentina, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 172 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake as well. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.6.
According to preliminary calculations, we do not expect that the quake was felt by many people and did not cause any damage. In San Antonio de los Cobres (pop. 4,000, 75 km away), the quake was probably not felt.

Moderate magnitude 4.6 earthquake 96 km southeast of Minas de Marcona, Peru
4.6 quake 14 Aug 2:09 pm (GMT -5)

An earthquake of magnitude 4.6 occurred only 18 minutes ago 96 km southeast of Minas de Marcona, Peru, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 51 km beneath the epicenter near Minas de Marcona, Provincia de Nazca, Region Ica, Peru, early afternoon on Sunday, August 14th, 2022, at 2:09 pm local time. 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.6 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Atiquipa (pop. 140) located 28 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Acari (pop. 4,400) located 55 km from the epicenter, San Juan de Marcona (pop. 12,800) 87 km away, and Minas de Marcona (pop. 15,500) 96 km away.
