A moderate magnitude 4.0 earthquake hits 65 km southwest of Tehran, Iran in the afternoon
Magnitude 4.0 earthquake 65 km south of Tehran, Iran, May 27, 2022 at 4:33 p.m. (GMT +4:30 a.m.)
A magnitude 4.0 earthquake occurred on the afternoon of Friday, May 27, 2022 at 4:03 p.m. local time near Tehran, Iran, as reported by the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC).
According to preliminary data, the earthquake was located at a shallow depth of 23 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones because they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter and depth of the quake could be revised in the coming hours or minutes as seismologists review the data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies release their report.
Towns near the epicenter where the quake could have been felt as a very weak tremor include Eqbālīyeh (pop. 36,700) located 32 km from the epicenter, Varāmīn (pop. 179,600) 42 km away, Robāţ Karīm ( pop. 62,800) 42 km away, Qarchak (pop. 251,800) 44 km away, Pīshvā (pop. 53,900) 48 km away, Shahrīār (pop. 58,800) 61 km away, Malārd (pop. 56,700) 65 km, Tehran (pop. 7,153,300) 65 km and Shahre Jadide Andisheh (pop. 80,000) 65 km.
