An hour ago, the German Research Centre for Geosciences reported a 5.3-magnitude earthquake 86 km north of Nogliki, Noglikskii, Sakhalin Oblast, Russia at a shallow depth of 10km.
Since it just have occurred and reported the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
The earthquake was felt as weak shaking in Tungor (pop. 1,300) located 89 km from the epicenter, Nogliki (pop. 10,100) 90 km away, Katanga (pop. 850) 99 km away, and Okha (pop. 26,600) 111 km away.
