Magnitude 4.3 earthquake – 63 km west of Anchor Point, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, USA, on Tuesday, 04 Oct 2022 at 19:28 local time

A magnitude 4.3 quake struck just 8 minutes ago near Anchor Point (Kenai Peninsula, Alaska) in Alaska, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported. According to the institute, which is considered the most important national and international agency for seismic activity in the United States, the quake occurred on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, early in the evening at 7:28 p.m. local time at an average depth of 118 km below sea level Epicenter. The magnitude, exact location of the epicenter and earthquake depth can still be corrected over the next few hours while seismologists manually evaluate the data and refine their calculations.
A second agency, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, also gave the earthquake a magnitude of 4.3. A third agency, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), gave the magnitude of the quake as 4.3.
Some locations near the epicenter where the quake may have been felt based on preliminary estimates are Anchor Point (pop. 1,900 63 km away, very slight vibration expected), Diamond Ridge (pop. 1,200 81 km away, very slight vibration), Homer (pop. 5,500 at 83 km, very slight vibration), Fritz Creek (pop. 1,900 at 93 km, very slight vibration) and Cohoe (pop. 1,400 at 97 km, very slight vibration) . In Kalifornsky (pop. 7,900, 100 km away) the earthquake was probably not felt.

Data for the same earthquake reported by different agencies

Info: The more agencies report about the same quake and post similar data, the more confidence you can have in the data. It takes normally up to a few hours until earthquake parameters are calculated with near-optimum precision.
