Hours ago the Kazakhstan National Data Centre (KNDC) reported a 4.9-magnitude earthquake 140 km west of Lesosibirsk, Krasnoyarskiy Kray, Russia at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The moderate earthquake was most likely felt by a small number of people. It was most likely felt as a weak shaking in the towns of Yeniseysk, 125km away from the epicenter, Lesosibirsk, 140km away from the epicenter, Achinsk, 213km away from the epicenter and Bogotol, 221km away from the epicenter.
